What We Believe
We believe that the fight against hunger and the fight against poverty are one and the same. We envision a future in which food is recognized as a human right and every person is able to feed themselves and their families in dignity.
Who We Are
Our mission is to leverage the power of food to end hunger and build healthier communities.
Foodlink has a 40-year history of mobilizing a diverse network of community partners to address both the symptoms and root causes of food insecurity throughout the Greater Rochester and Finger Lakes region of New York. We are transforming lives, advocating for equity, and creating healthy futures for every community we serve.
Foodlink relies on thousands of volunteers each year to sort, inspect and pack food that nourishes thousands of our neighbors. We could not do the work we do without them! Volunteers also contribute to the success of our other food-related programs, such as the Curbside Market, Nutrition Education, and the Lexington Ave. Community Farm. Sign up today to donate your time and support our mission!
Foodlink’s strategic plan calls for us to use data to inform continuous improvement. We analyze our metrics to track our progress, with one underlying question guiding our work: Are people better off?
