Tony DiTucci started his career as an estimator and project manager at Spoleta Construction & Development Corporation Rochester while still an undergraduate at Saint John Fisher College. At the moment, Tony DiTucci is the chief operating officer at Livingston Associates. Over the years, he has supported several philanthropic organizations, one of which is Foodlink.

Foodlink’s goal as a non-profit and humanitarian organization is to end hunger and build healthier communities. Foodlink is regarded as a food bank responsible for storing and distributing purchased or donated food meant to be served to food-insecure individuals. It is one of the leading public health organizations, serving across 10 county areas and identifying and fighting roots and symptoms of food insecurity in individuals.

Foodlink benefits from a lot of support from the community through its volunteers. Volunteers can donate food and money and deliver the food to people’s houses to help and cover as many people and areas as possible. In addition, Foodlink’s nutrition education program helps the community live a healthy lifestyle. Its everyday work throughout the community reflects the efforts toward stopping diet-related diseases by distributing nutritious and fresh food while decreasing the distribution of unhealthy food.
