The good Cornellians can do: Linda (Edelman) Bradley ’84

BY LINDA COPMAN MAY 13, 2024

Nearly two years ago, Linda (Edelman) Bradley ’84 founded the Poppyseed Project—an effort to rescue end-of-day bagels from the landfill and donate them to hungry neighbors.

Living in a bagel-rich community in northern New Jersey, Linda realized that local bagel shops needed help to rescue their unsold bagels at the end of the day. She organized a volunteer initiative to collect these bagels and deliver them to local food pantries. She has since teamed up with the Table to Table I-Rescue app to connect volunteer pick-ups and deliveries.

“Bagels bring smiles to adults and kids alike and we feel great about helping achieve that!,” Linda says.

Cornellians around the globe are sharing how they do good in communities big and small. Share your own story.
