    Dedicated to Foodlink, in honor of creating an incredible organization that serves the community I called home for 24 years. I will forever be indebted to your organization for all you do to serve Rochester and for creating volunteer opportunities, one of which introduced me to my husband at a little over 10 years ago. We're honored to be featured in one of your 40 stories and I'm grateful I'll be able to attend. Thank you all for all you do.
