Chipotle, Farmlink donate 340,000 lbs. of food to Texas food banks, Including in El Paso

After the recent team up announcement between restaurant chain Chipotle and The Farmlink Project, Food Banks all over Texas received special donations from the duo

A nonprofit grassroots movement founded by college students that connects farms with food banks to help eliminate food waste and feed those in need, The Farmlink Project donated nearly 340,000 lbs. of produce to food banks in need across Texas as local communities continue to recover from the winter storm.

Here in El Paso, they donated 40,000 lbs. of potatoes to El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank, with another 25,000 lb. mixed greens delivery expected later this week.

According to officials, this will provide 52,000 meals to the El Paso community.

In addition, Chipotle is donating $50,000 to the Texas Farmer Winter Storm Relief Fund, a statewide relief effort for small, sustainable local farmers affected by the recent storm.

The money will go toward storm recovery and damage repair for farms. Local residents can support Texas farmers by donating to the Relief Fund through its GoFundMe page.
