Since it’s founding six years ago, the non-profit food rescue group Food link has grown tremendously.

So much so, in fact, it purchased a new location at 108 Summer Street, near Arlington center.

Food Link collects roughly one-half million pounds of donated fresh food a year which allows for more than 400 thousand nutritious meals on the table. The new building will allow Food Link to expand its capacity to further help communities it already serves and to reach out to other neighborhoods in their coverage area.
