Goalkeepers 2023 Campaign Award Winner: The Farmlink Project

Sett 80 ganger 20. sep. 2023Our Goalkeepers Global Goals Campaign Award celebrates a campaign that has raised awareness or built a community by inspiring action and creating change. Meet the 2023 Campaign Award winner—the Farmlink Project. Ben Collier, Aidan Reilly, and James Kanoff started the Farmlink Project out of their college dorms with their classmates in 2020, when food insecurity was on the rise amid the pandemic. They saw transportation and logistics as a missing link between hunger and food surplus—as an opportunity to fight hunger. What started with kids renting a U-Haul truck is now a rapidly growing non-profit organization with over 20 employees and more than 600 student fellows. It provides swift and nationwide logistics solutions for not just farmers, but also big food corporations, organizing shipping and assisting them in optimizing tax benefits from donating surplus food to food banks.
