Remembering Edgar

Foodlink’s heart breaks today to learn of the passing of our Community Farm Manager, Edgar Santa Cruz.

Edgar joined Foodlink this fall with a passion for engaging with and serving the community, and was eager to help lead the ongoing transformation of the Foodlink Community Farm. His first major project was coordinating a series of community input forums this January about the farm’s future. He worked hard to connect with all stakeholders around the farm, and he had a knack for making everyone comfortable and engaged. His collaborative spirit was a gift to this community.

As a social worker by training and through his previous role at Cameron Community Ministries, his work was ultimately about building relationships, and supporting and advocating for others. He did this so very well, and his loss will undoubtedly be felt by the community that he has served for many years.

We send our deepest condolences to his family, and all of those who had the privilege to know him.
