Do you have a voice and want to use it to make a difference? Know your community! Share about LINK and friend us on social media.

One of the most notable aspects of LINK is the attitude of the people that make it work. They are kind and caring and not the least bit condescending. They are inclined to be far more enriched than the visitors.



Our MISSION is simple: to feed people regardless of their circumstances. 

Together with our network of volunteers and community, L.I.N.K provides healthy and nutritious meals to all who come through our doors. 

We are committed to improving the quality of life and honoring the dignity of those we serve when serving a hot meal to any member of our community who wants one.

13,040 MEALS
