Food Link can provide desserts for your special event!
Providing healthy food to our target population is a priority. We donate sweets and decorations that we receive to non-profits and city departments that are hosting celebrations and meetings.
Food Link can typically provide cookies, brownies, pies, and cakes to events. However, since we are a food rescue organization, all items are subject to availability.
The recipient organization will be expected to pick-up the food at the First Parish UU church, 630 Massachusetts Ave in Arlington. The main entrance is on Mass Ave, however the Food Link entrance is off of Pleasant St. When you turn onto Pleasant St., take an immediate right into a U shaped driveway. You will see a couple of Food Link signs. Behind the handicap parking sign will be a doorbell. Please ring that and a staff member will be out to assist you. Pick up times will be between 1 and 3 pm on Monday or Friday.
Donations are made to non-profit organizations only and the items may not be sold. By requesting desserts, you will be added to the Food Link mailing list. You can unsubscribe by clicking on the link at the bottom of any Food Link email.
A suggested donation for special event requests is $15. This helps to offset the cost associated with collecting and sorting the food. Please make a check out to Food Link or donate online here.
Please fill out this form to request food for an upcoming event. Indicate at the bottom of the form whether each person will need an individually packaged item (each person gets a package of cookies), or if the total amount of desserts should be able to serve everyone (you have 6 guests so will need one pack of 6 cookies).
