Arlington Democrats top $5,000 goal for Food Link

Democratic logo, 2021

The Arlington Democratic Town Committee has participated in Food Link’s fall fund-raiser Ride for Food. The team surpassed its $5,000 goal and would like to thank the community for its donations and support.

Choosing the “off the beaten path” option, the team chose to bike, hike, swim or stroll. Ranging in age from 23 to 83, team members participated with friends, family and pets.

Food Link, an Arlington-based organization, rescues fresh food that would otherwise be wasted, delivers it to community organizations serving people in need and contributes to environmental sustainability.

Arlington Democrats have also participated in food collection/fund raising for Arlington EATS and in textile recycling drives.

While the official Food Link event is over, fund-raising continues through Nov. 30.

Unfortunately, food insecurity is not over, and because of inflation and the Covid pandemic, it is actually increasing. The town committee asks the public to spread the word about the need and how to donate. Click here >>
