Foodlink and Adirondack Creamery team up and hit the streets
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Foodlink was out in the Rochester area Friday bringing families nutritious summer meals.
The ice cream truck-style delivery method started in 2020 during the pandemic, and this year, Foodlink has partnered with Adirondack Creamery to give families some hand-crafted desert, too.
Foodlink says many families rely on school breakfast and lunch during the school year. So to be able to deliver lunch in the summer relieves some of that burden.

"There are summer meals sites around the city of Rochester but some of those sites aren’t within walking distance. So what we wanted to do at Foodlink was be able to provide healthy nutritious meals that were a mile or two away from a grab and go site."
Foodlink says a nourished mind is one that’s going to learn and live better.
Foodlink was able to provide this service thanks to funding provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
