Food Link is a community organization that rescues fresh food, alleviates hunger, and contributes to environmental sustainability.

Food Link collects high-quality fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy, bread and prepared foods that would otherwise be wasted from 24 local grocery and prepared food stores. We deliver the nutritious food to over 42 social service agencies serving people in need, including after school programs, programs for at-risk youth, low income housing facilities, homeless shelters, food pantries, and senior centers. Food Link is based in Arlington, MA and serves 18 communities throughout Greater Boston, from South Boston to Lawrence. It operates 363 days a year, and is powered by 200 volunteers.
