Feed Millions Through The Farmlink Project

What is The Farmlink Project?

Started by university students, The Farmlink Project  is a grassroots movement and non-profit organization collecting surplus produce from farms and delivering it to food banks across the United States. To date, we’ve moved more than 9 million pounds of food, provided $650,000+ in economic relief to farmers and truckers, and prevented 17,512,110 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions. You can find us in The New York Times , Fox News , Variety Magazine , ABC , and Washington Post , or on Zoom, which we use for every single one of our meetings. We’re a group of 150+ college students, all volunteers, all working remotely, and most of us met through this organization (we’ve since become very close friends, even though we have never met in person!).

What is The Farmlink Response Team?

Help us deliver food to communities in need across the United States! With your support, we will be traveling 8000+ miles from Los Angeles to New York and back, visiting farms we have sourced from and food banks we have delivered to. Additionally, we will serve US communities with the highest rates of food insecurity and develop a short documentary series on heroes in the food insecurity space. All proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards purchasing and transporting produce from farm to food bank. 

The Farmlink Response Team will be visiting farms and food banks in the below areas:
Siskiyou, CA
Bainbridge, WA
Ashton, ID
Garryowen, MT
Detroit, MI
Philadelphia, PA
New York City, NY
Baltimore, MD

More Information

We are proponents and supporters of eco-traveling, and have strategized ways to reduce waste. Some of our initiatives include: avoiding disposable items (we have pledged to limit takeout food and use reusable water bottles), saving water (we have pledged to take showers under 3 minutes), recycling all relevant materials, limiting use of A/C and heating, and shopping locally when possible. 

As we’re traveling during a global pandemic, we’re also taking incredible precautions to remaining healthy and safe. We’re traveling in an RV so as to limit our interaction with anyone other than our isolation unit. We will wear masks when outside at all times; have stocked ourselves with soap, wipes, gloves, and hand sanitizer; and will maintain social distancing with individuals who are not traveling with us.
