Greater Boston Food Bank

Nominated for: BEST Local Charity

Greater Boston Food Bank 70 South Bay Ave Boston MA (617) 427-0146

The Greater Boston Food Bank distributes nearly 41 million pounds of food and grocery products annually to a network of 550 member hunger-relief agencies and more than 30 direct service programs throughout eastern Massachusetts.

Mission
To End Hunger Here. Our objective is to distribute enough food to provide at least one meal a day to all those in need in eastern Massachusetts.

Company Overview
The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) is the largest hunger-relief organization in New England and among the largest food banks in the country. Last year, we distributed almost 41 million pounds of food, enough to provide healthy meals to as many as 545,000 people at risk of hunger.

GBFB acquires food through food industry product donations, food drives and financial contributions that enable us to purchase additional high nutrient quality food. We also benefit from the generosity of over 20,000 volunteers annually who help to sort and distribute donated food products.

GBFB works to acquire, store, organize and distribute food through local food pantries, community meal programs, homeless and residential shelters, youth programs, senior centers, and day-care centers embedded in communities throughout the nine counties of eastern Massachusetts. GBFB’s food assistance locator provides an easy way for people in need to find help nearby. GBFB also distributes food directly to those in need through dedicated programs that serve particularly vulnerable groups, such as seniors and children.
