Foodlink: Nourishing Lives During the Pandemic

Foodlink: Nourishing Lives During the Pandemic

About This Campaign

"Foodlink: Nourishing Lives During the Pandemic" will air on Wednesday, January 27, 2021, at 7 PM on News 8 WROC-TV. Thank you to Wegmans for serving as our presenting sponsor!

When Foodlink’s annual Festival of Food event was canceled this fall due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we pivoted to create a televised fundraising special to seek community support for our continuing response.

Join us as we go behind the scenes with President & CEO Julia Tedesco. Hear stories of community resilience and learn how Foodlink and our community partners mobilized to provide nourishment to thousands in our region.

The need is greater now more than ever, and it’s through the generosity of supporters like you that we can continue helping our local community.

96% of every dollar goes directly to our programs and services. Every $1 equals 3 meals.

Thank you for your support!

Campaign to Support 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.
