After taking two years off due to the pandemic, Foodlink’s Festival of Food returned at the Public Market on Monday, September 12!
The Festival of Food is Foodlink’s annual fall fundraiser and one of the largest tasting events in the region. Rochester-area food and beverage vendors – from restaurants to wineries, and bakeries to breweries – gathered in one place for one special night to benefit Foodlink and the thousands of people who benefit from its programs and services.
This year, there were 50 vendors and more than 850 attendees. The festival featured an all-you-can-eat-and-drink experience for guests, in addition to live music, raffles, and more.
The Festival of Food wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for Wegmans (our title sponsor) and all of our contributing sponsors. We also want to thank all our amazing volunteers and staff who helped put the festival on. And, of course, all of the local businesses in the food and drink industry donate their time and talents to make this an amazing experience for all.
Last but not least, thank you to all the guests who came out to support our mission. In total we raised nearly $80,000!
