Foodlink recently received a $25,000 donation from Bank of America to address food insecurity in Rochester.
Over 150,000 individuals in Rochester live in food insecure homes, including 49,400 children.
To address the recent uptick in food insecurity, Bank of America donated $100 to Foodlink for each employee in Rochester who received a COVID-19 booster shot and notified the bank before the end of January.
The donation is part of a program to encourage bank employees to get boosted while supporting the overall health and well-being of the community.
Bank of America has committed a total of $10.6 million to address the increased needs experienced by hunger relief organizations across the country. The contribution is part of the bank’s efforts to address hunger relief and strengthen local communities.
