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 the Feeding America food bank serving Allegany, Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming, and Yates counties. For more than 40 years, we have leveraged the power of food to end hunger and build healthier communities. Through good stewardship, innovation and collaboration, Foodlink mobilizes a diverse network of community partners to eradicate both the symptoms and root causes of hunger. Foodlink’s community health programs provide new access points to nutritious and affordable food in under served communities. We empower individuals and families to make healthy choices through nutrition education initiatives. Our food banking operations distribute millions of pounds of food to a network of nonprofit members. The Foodlink Community Kitchen nourishes thousands of children daily with healthy meals, slices locally grown apples, and prepares people for culinary careers through a one-of-a-kind career empowerment program.
