Chipotle is on a mission to make sustainable long-term change in the fight against food insecurity.
Last year, the company partnered with the Farmlink Project, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit that connects farms with food banks to feed those in need, as a part of their Round Up for Real Change digital feature.
Since then, Chipotle’s commitment and donations made it possible for Farmlink to donate more than 2.8 million pounds of produce to 12 food banks across Los Angeles and Orange County, which equals about 2.2 million meals for those in need.
“Thanks to Chipotle’s donation, we’re helping to address food insecurity in America, build farmer relationships and inspire hope to encourage fan engagement that will keep our mission alive for many years to come,” said Maxwell Goldman, co-founder of the Farmlink Project, which comprises more than 100 students from colleges and universities around the country.
“We are thrilled to contribute to the Farmlink Project and accelerate their mission of feeding the hungry,” said Erin Wolford, senior director of external communications for Chipotle. “It’s inspiring to see a group of college students problem solve and develop an innovative solution that will help communities and reduce waste.”
