Over 500 Arlington children rely on free or reduced lunch when school is in session and our local food pantry receives 700 visits per month. These are our neighbors and friends who we know from school, sports and local activities. Our goal for this party is to raise money so these children eat healthy meals over the summer. Food Link is an Arlington-based food rescue that collects fresh food overage from retailers and gets it to food insecure residents in need. By doing so, Food Link helps alleviate hunger, nourish our community and contribute to environmental sustainability. Food Link partners with 19 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 Arlington EATS, Arlington Food Pantry, Arlington Boys & Girls Club, Fidelity House and the Arlington Senior Center.
