FoodLink’s goal is your goal: To increase knowledge and awareness (and sales) of locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables.
Launched by Purdue Extension in 2016, FoodLink has expanded quickly. It now features more than 60 fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and honey, and 200-plus easy, tasty recipes.
The key is a QR code. A consumer (shopper) sees a food item — broccoli, for example. By pointing a cellphone at the QR code display, the shopper is connected to the FoodLink website. Pictures and text tell the shopper all about broccoli — including how to cook it. Shoppers have questions. FoodLink has answers.
As a first-time enrollee, you will receive a complimentary FoodLink kit loaded with marketing materials to promote the program in your venue. We have two kits — one for farmer markets with multiple vendors, and one for single location retailers, such as grocery stores and roadside stands.

Your kit will be delivered to the address you put on the enrollment form.
