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.
