Foodlink is a regional food hub and the Feeding America food bank serving Allegany, Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming, and Yates counties. We alleviate hunger by distributing food to a network of hundreds of human service agencies and target the root causes of food insecurity through dozens of food-related programs and our state-of-the-art commercial kitchen. Last year, Foodlink distributed 17.4 million pounds of food, including 4.9 million pounds of produce, and served more than 1.1 million meals and snacks to children in our community. Foodlink delivers multiple nutrition education programs aimed to help improve food literacy and empower families to make healthy choices. A suite of food access programs provide new access points to nutritious food in underserved communities. The Foodlink Community Kitchen prepares and delivers more than 4,500 meals daily to Rochester children, and supports our regional agricultural economy by minimally processing locally grown apples for distribution into schools and other institutions. Our innovative approach directly addresses diet-related health disparities related to food insecurity.
