Help Us Meet Demand for Emergency Food

Help Us Meet Demand for Emergency Food

About This Campaign

Before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, there was already a hunger crisis in our community. Year-round, 145,000 people in our 10-county region struggle to feed their families. We know that number is growing quickly because of this public health emergency.

We have seen a 40% increase in our food distribution, and we anticipate that demand will continue to rise. Many individuals and families are relying on the emergency food system for the very first time. This means, now more than ever, Foodlink and our network of hunger-relief partners must be there to ensure that a nutritious meal is one less worry for our neighbors in need. We hope you can help.

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.
