The Farmlink Project aspires to collaborate with a diverse network of individuals, communities, and organizations as we work towards a more equitable and food secure future.

As a young organization founded by university students, we come from a place of privilege, and are thus strongly committed to diversifying our workforce and making Farmlink an inclusive space for all backgrounds. We recognize that this is a process demanding constant attention and growth; as an organization, we commit to educating ourselves and growing our community. At the Farmlink Project, we recognize that food insecurity and the impacts of climate change are tied to systems of oppression that disproportionately impact BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) and other marginalized communities. As we work towards a zero hunger, zero waste future, we commit to addressing systemic inequalities by building change, both internally and externally.

We want to foster an internal community where every identity can feel that they belong. We commit to:

  • Better understanding and diversifying our existing demographics
  • Fostering a culture of open communication, understanding, and continuous learning
  • Realizing and implementing accessible, sustainable, equitable, and inclusive standards across our organization

We want to engage external community to make the food recovery conversation more accessible. We commit to:

  • Sharing critical conversations and diverse stories from stakeholders within our food system in a dignified and respectful manner
  • Advocating for change in the food system so that all may have access to nutritious food and healthy environments
  • Better understanding, diversifying, and growing our food rescue network, the communities we serve, and the stakeholders we engage

We all have a stake in the food system.
