ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Foodlink is starting Hunger Action Month with an infusion of cash.

Wednesday Rep. Joe Morelle announced $750,000 for the organization to upgrade infrastructure and bolster services.

Morelle said the money will support a much-needed refrigerator expansion to store more produce for the community.

Because of the pandemic, the organization has distributed 25% more food this past year than the year prior.
