Operation BackPack

Operation BackPack

About This Campaign

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!

Campaign to Support Foodlink

Foodlink is the Feeding America food bank serving Allegany, Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming, and Yates counties. For more than 40 years, we have leveraged the power of food to end hunger and build healthier communities. Through good stewardship, innovation and collaboration, Foodlink mobilizes a diverse network of community partners to eradicate both the symptoms and root causes of hunger. Foodlink’s community health programs provide new access points to nutritious and affordable food in under served communities. We empower individuals and families to make healthy choices through nutrition education initiatives. Our food banking operations distribute millions of pounds of food to a network of nonprofit members. The Foodlink Community Kitchen nourishes thousands of children daily with healthy meals, slices locally grown apples, and prepares people for culinary careers through a one-of-a-kind career empowerment program. Learn more about how we are transforming lives and creating healthy futures for every community we serve at www.foodlinkny.org, or follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram at @foodlinkny.
