  2. With food insecurity on the rise ... can you help?
New food-insecurity data released this month revealed a dramatic rise in food security in the Rochester and Finger Lakes region. Consider these two facts: 

  • Food insecurity across our 10 counties spiked, resulting in an additional 33,000 people with limited or uncertain access to healthy food. It is a one-year increase we have not seen since the Great Recession.

  • In the first three months of 2024, visits to food pantries and meal programs increased 35% compared to the year prior. We are on track to see 1.9 million visits this year. 

 Your support of Foodlink is critical at this moment. Will you consider a gift today to support Foodlink and thousands of food-insecure families in our region?
