On January 26 and 27, The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) teamed up with twenty-one of the area’s celebrated chefs and restaurants to raise awareness and support to end hunger in eastern Massachusetts. The thirty-first annual “Super Hunger Brunch” offered pre-set menus at twenty-one local restaurants for $25, $35, or $50. Over 1,700 guests enjoyed delicious brunch fare and contributed close to $65,000 to GBFB, enough to provide 150,000 meals to those in need.
GBFB’s Culinary Committee spearheaded the weekend-long fundraising event. Generous in-kind donations were also provided by Garelick Farms, Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs, Cold
River Vodka and DIAGEO. Boston magazine was the exclusive media sponsor of Super Hunger Brunch.
“Chefs, restaurateurs, purveyors, and other members of the food community are among our most compassionate and consistent supporters,” noted Catherine D’Amato, GBFB’s President and CEO. “The annual Super Hunger Brunch is a tribute to their generosity. We are so grateful for their time, their talents and their commitment.”
