When Tonya McKee tuned to the nightly news while preparing dinner with Jack, her three-year-old son, she didn’t anticipate it would lead to her son becoming the youngest Holiday Meal Drive participant in The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) history. McKee and Jack watched as members in their Needham community lined up to donate food at the local pantry. While watching the news cast Jack inquired why their neighbors were lining up with cans of beans and tuna in their hands. Tonya explained that, while Jack and their family had plenty to eat, people all over the community—including children and their mothers—did not have enough food to keep them full and nourished. She told Jack about how their neighbors and friends help by donating to GBFB. With simplicity, Jack declared they should join the effort.
