Farmlink

FarmLink is a not-for-profit grassroots movement that connects farms with food banks to feed thousands in need while supporting essential jobs.

We are a group of University students committed to alleviating the ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic. When our college campuses closed in March 2020 in response to COVID-19, many of us found ourselves back at home with the urge to make a positive impact wherever it was needed. FarmLink was born when we saw the impact of food shortages, business closures, and lay-offs in each of our communities, and committed ourselves to making a positive difference. Our team comprises students from Brown University, Stanford University, Cornell University, Georgetown University, Dartmouth College, The Harvard School of Business, The University of Southern California, and Babson College.

FarmLink is a grassroots movement that won’t let food go to waste during the COVID-19 pandemic. While food banks are facing an unprecedented increase in demand, millions of pounds of produce are being dumped or wasted as commercial farms around the country struggle to adapt to decreased and cancelled orders. Our project connects such farms with under stocked and understaffed food banks. 100% of donations towards FarmLink are used to pay the wages of farm workers and truckers, thereby keeping employees staffed, fresh produce away from dumps, and food onto the tables of those who need it most. If you would like to join our effort or contribute in any way, please email contact@thefarmlinkproject.org

Globally, 1.3 billion tonnes of food is wasted every year. Food waste in landfills leads to extensive greenhouse gas emissions—4.4 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide are released into the atmosphere each year from food waste.

FarmLink’s work not only reduces the amount of food waste, but decreases the rate of anthropogenic climate change from our agricultural footprint. This is a sustainable solution that is only continuing to grow with FarmLink.
