Operation BackPack

Operation BackPack
The Operation BackPack fundraising drive this fall will support Foodlink’s childhood hunger programs -- such as the BackPack Program -- during the 2020-2021 school year, no matter what the school year looks like. Your gift today can nourish children in need.

Tens of thousands of children in Foodlink's 10-county service area live in food-insecure households. The numbers have risen sharply (43%) since the onset of the pandemic. Foodlink’s BackPack Program provides food-insecure children with bags of nutritious food they can discreetly take home and easily prepare on their own. Foodlink's Community Kitchen also prepares thousands of healthy meals daily -- with grab-and-go options available to parents due to COVID-19.

You can help by donating to provide children in need with nutritious food during this school year. Thank you for your generous support!

In Support of Foodlink

Foodlink is a Rochester-based nonprofit dedicated to ending hunger and building healthier communities by addressing both the symptoms and root causes of food insecurity. We serve as the hub of the emergency food system across a 10-county service area. As a leading public health organization, Foodlink administers many programs and initiatives that aim to build the health and wealth of communities.

We provide food assistance through the safe storage and distribution of emergency food to our network of food bank members and community partners. We build healthier communities through innovative programs that create new access points to nutritious foods and empower people to make healthy choices. We drive change through bold career empowerment initiatives and advocacy for a more just, equitable food system.
