Seneca County House of Concern is a proud partner of Foodlink.
Foodlink partners with almost 500 human service organizations in a 10-county region. Foodlink works with both emergency agencies such as food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters as well as non-emergency agencies such as day cares, group homes, and senior centers. Their Member Relations team provides assistance in all aspects of food sourcing, nutritional output, and hunger-relief tools.
Foodlink’s mission is to end hunger and to leverage the power of food to build a healthier community.
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. In 2015, Foodlink distributed nearly 19 million pounds of food — including 4.6 million pounds of produce, offered more than 200 nutrition education courses, and created new access points for healthy foods in underserved communities. The innovative approach directly addresses health disparities related to food insecurity.
