Julia Tedesco

Julia Tedesco is Executive Director, Foodlink.  Foodlink is a community food resource center and the Feeding America food bank serving Allegany, Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming, and Yates counties. They leverage the power of food to transform lives, end hunger and build healthier communities. Through good stewardship, innovation and collaboration, Foodlink mobilizes a diverse network of partners and stakeholders to eradicate both the symptoms and root causes of hunger.

By orchestrating a complex system of food recovery, storage, and distribution, Foodlink is doing something very simple: feeding our neighbors. They also employ multiple “upstream” approaches to solving hunger (e.g. Food Access, Nutrition Education 7 Workforce Development) that address why an individual or family may suffer from food insecurity.

Ms. Tedesco has been Executive Director at Foodlink since 2014.
