What do these things have in common?
- Almost 35 million meals delivered to people in need
- Over 40 million pounds of food moved
- Over 40 million pounds of CO2 emissions prevented
They are what four innovative young men have accomplished since the onset of the pandemic through creating The Farmlink Project — a community of givers who combat hunger and heal the planet by linking farmers to food banks and much more! Meet James Kanoff, Ben and Will Collier and Aidan Reilly and learn about their remarkable journey. This lively conversation from the Crazy Amazing Humans podcast with Katrina Carlson and Jefferson Denim will inspire you and give you hope for the future.
The Farmlink Project, a nonprofit, grassroots organization run by 250 volunteers, was just awarded the 2021 Congressional Medal of Honor Service Award. Due to the effects of COVID-19, over 54 million people were experiencing food insecurity. At the same time, the four founders from an article in the New York Times learned that fresh food was going to waste on farms and food banks were running on empty, so they decided to do something about it. The Farmlink Project connects farms that have a surplus of fresh, nutritious produce to communities in need with the added bonus of decreasing greenhouse gas emissions!
We promise you’re going to love hearing how these young people and the Farmlink Project community are passionately addressing the challenges of food waste, food insecurity and the environment–incredibly inspiring!
