Mission Statement

Food Link alleviates hunger, reduces food waste, and contributes to environmental sustainability. We collect food that would otherwise go to waste from local grocers and caf├ęs and deliver to community organizations serving people in need.


Food Link is an Arlington-based food rescue non-profit that uses the power of volunteers to collect fresh food from food retailers and distribute it to local agencies serving residents in need.

We partner with 17 local grocery and prepared food stores to bring high-quality fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy, bread and prepared foods to 30 social service agencies including afterschool programs, programs for at-risk youth, low-income housing facilities, homeless shelters, food pantries, and senior centers.
