Rochester meal sites: Foodlink’s partnership with RCSD, City continues

The City, Foodlink and the Rochester City School District (RCSD) will continue to collaborate to provide free, healthy meals for children across Rochester this school year. Since March, this collaboration – along with other community partners including Common Ground Health and the Rochester Area Community Foundation – has resulted in the distribution of more than 1.3 million meals.

The food distribution program provides city children with access to the meals they would have received at school and after-school programs.

Beginning Wednesday, Sept. 9, grab-and-go meals will be available at 20 RCSD schools, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Beginning Monday, Sept. 14, R-Centers will have breakfast, lunch and dinner available from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Foodlink will continue to provide food for other community locations (such as Agape Haven, 289 Driving Park) and will partner with additional organizations and programs seeking to offer meal service to children and families. Those organizations can contact Claire Savini at (585) 413-5063 ( to learn more.
