ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Foodlink is getting $750,000 in funding for a refrigerator expansion.

Foodlink CEO Julia Tedesco said they realized how badly they needed it to stock more produce during the pandemic.

"What became clear during the pandemic is that we had need for additional investments in infrastructure," Tedesco said. "We knew that people wanted to donate food but the infrastructure was critical to continue our service."

The award is part of the community funding project allowing members of Congress to provide direct support to areas of their communities that need it most.
