On January 26, 45 students from across Massachusetts gathered to volunteer at GBFB as part of Project 351, Governor Patrick’s annual initiative that brings together 351 eighth graders – one from each Massachusetts city and town– for a day of service. This is the third year the students have visited GBFB.
This year, participants packed 1,200 BackPacks and sorted 5,000 pounds of frozen protein, including chicken, pork and beef. Their work made more than 7,500 meals possible. Governor Patrick visited to help with both projects, congratulate the students on their extraordinary achievements, and thank GBFB team members for their support and assistance.
