The Farmlink Project is a college student led nonprofit that recovers excess farmer produce and delivers it to communities in need. The Farmlink Project began March 2020, in response to global COVID-19 shutdowns. At the onset of COVID-19 farmers were wasting produce at an unprecedented rate while simultaneously, food and nutrition security increased as alarming rates. The Farmlink Project has moved nearly 31 million pounds of food in only a little over a year of operation. This initiative is an exciting example of the opportunity within private sector agricultural output and nonprofit logistical assistance to get nutritious foods to those who needed it most.
