Foodlink has been awarded a $6,000 grant from The Darden Foundation to help provide hunger-relief to Rochester-area families. The funds will be used to support Foodlink’s Mobile Pantry program, which connects underserved neighborhoods and communities with large distributions of food on a monthly or bimonthly basis.
Foodlink, a member of the Feeding America® network, is one of 193 food banks to receive this funding from The Darden Foundation. According to Feeding America’s Map the Meal Gap report, more than 145,000 people in Foodlink’s 10-county service area are considered food insecure.
The Darden Foundation is committed to supporting families facing food insecurity in communities across the United States. Their commitment to help is demonstrated through their partnership with Feeding America and their network of 200 food banks across the nation.
Feeding America has worked alongside The Darden Foundation for seven years in the fight to end hunger. Thanks to their ongoing support, the Feeding America network has been able to help provide even more meals to families in need.
