About Foodlink: 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. Their operations target the root causes of hunger. They do this by distributing food to a network of human service agencies, serving meals through their commercial kitchen, and offering more than 30 food-related programs. Last year, Foodlink distributed more than 17.4 million pounds of food — including 4.9 million pounds of produce, offered more than 200 nutrition education courses, and created new access points for healthy foods in underserved communities. Their innovative approach directly addresses health disparities related to food insecurity.
