The Foodlink FOODFriendzy Challenge

The Foodlink FOODFriendzy Challenge

About This Campaign

The Foodlink FOODFriendzy challenge. A “Pay It Forward” campaign to generate community support for Foodlink and area restaurants impacted by the COVID-19 health crisis.

Interested donors can pledge a gift to Foodlink and challenge a friend on social media to do the same. In return, the donor purchases a gift certificate to a local Rochester restaurant for their friend.

An example post might say: Hi, I’m Mary Smith. I’ve made a $50 gift to support Foodlink and I challenge John Smith to do the same. In gratitude, I’ll send John a gift certificate for $25 to The Cub Room.”

Love Foodlink? Love Food? Love Friends? Love our community? Make the challenge!

Please consider purchasing a gift card to one of the following Rochester area vendors, which graciously supported Foodlink’s 2019 fundraiser, the Festival of Food.

Campaign to Support Foodlink

Foodlink is a Rochester-based nonprofit dedicated to ending hunger and building healthier communities by addressing both the symptoms and root causes of food insecurity. We serve as the hub of the emergency food system across a 10-county service area. As a leading public health organization, Foodlink administers many programs and initiatives that aim to build the health and wealth of communities.

We provide food assistance through the safe storage and distribution of emergency food to our network of food bank members and community partners. We build healthier communities through innovative programs that create new access points to nutritious foods and empower people to make healthy choices. We drive change through bold career empowerment initiatives and advocacy for a more just, equitable food system.
