February 23, 2021 Sent home from his junior year at Brown University to finish the semester online, Aidan Reilly and some friends started a project to connect farms with excess produce to food bank. That small group of undergrads have since built Farmlink Project into an overnight non-profit sensation, raising more than $5 million, partnering with Chipotle, arranging delivery of over 25 million pounds of produce, and organizing 500+ students, all in less than 12 months. Aidan will share how he went from heading into his senior year on the water polo team to instead leading Farmlink Project to nationwide acclaim, articles in the New York Times, and much more importantly - on track to double the impact in 2021 aiming to deliver 50 million pounds of produce just in time to food banks in all of the lower 48 states.
