The Food Link Model
Food Link collects fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy, bread, and prepared foods that would otherwise be wasted from over 20 grocers, cafes, and farms.
Food Link volunteers deliver the food to more than 40 social service agencies serving people in need, including after school programs, programs for at-risk youth, low income housing facilities, homeless shelters, food pantries, veterans' programs, and senior centers.
Food Link volunteers are a crucial part of our success. Our 200+ volunteers help do nearly 2,600 collections each year, distributing over 500,000 pounds of fresh food annually - enough for 400,000 nutritious meals!
