The Farmlink Project

About The Farmlink Project

The Farmlink Project is a national 501(c)(3) that began two years ago when COVID-19 shut down college campuses in March of 2020. A small group of college students got together to help fight food waste and feed people in their community. From this grassroots beginning, The Farmlink Project was born. Over the last two years, this organization has empowered over 600 student volunteers, and today we are proud to have a full-time team of 20 industry professionals. Our combined efforts have rescued and distributed 100 million pounds of produce to food banks around the country.

We are fighting for a world where everyone has access to the food they need. The problems of hunger and food waste are massive, but solvable. Join our community of givers to combat hunger and heal the planet.

We’re recruiting for more passionate individuals to join us and are offering two fellowship opportunities.

The ROOT Fellowship occurs every Academic Year and Summer. This seasonal fellowship directly supports the work of Farmlink’s full time staff on operational, media, fundraising, and policy initiatives. ROOT fellows are the force that runs Farmlink!

The FIELD Fellowship occurs once annually and is an 8-month commitment. It is a hybrid experience that includes on-site food system work and independent project design. The FIELD Fellowship educates, empowers, and elevates the transformative power and potential of young minds to build tomorrow’s solutions!
