Food Link is so proud to be one of 100 local nonprofits to receive a grant of $100,000 through the Cummings Foundation’s “$100K for 100” program.
“This generous four-year grant will enable Food Link to continue to rescue food and feed our community,” said DeAnne Dupont, Co-Founder and President of Food Link. “We are particularly excited to use the grant funds to help make our organization sustainable into the future through supporting essential staff, adopting more technology-based infrastructure, and transitioning our operations into a new space in the near future,” said Dupont.
The $100K for 100 program supports nonprofits based in 35 different cities and towns within the Commonwealth and represent a wide variety of causes, including homelessness prevention and affordable housing, education, violence prevention, and food insecurity. With the conclusion of this grant cycle, Cummings Foundation has now awarded more than $170 million to local nonprofits alone.
