December 4th - The Farmlink Project: Connecting the Dots Between Food Waste and Hunger
This past year, in response to COVID-19 mandated shutdowns and the waves of turmoil those food chain disruptions sent through the US, college students James Kanoff and Aidan Reilly launched The Farmlink Project. The grassroots organization set out to connect farmers with surplus food and food banks with surplus patrons. Within the first two months, the organization relocated more than 7 million pounds of food, raised 1.5 million dollars in donations and on-boarded 185 full-time volunteers. As COVID-19 cases continue to rise and the questions of food supply chain stability linger, this is a conversation you won’t want to miss. Grab your coffee and join us as we learn how college students are changing the connection and distribution process for foodbanks across the US.
