Catherine D’Amato & GBFB rank #10 in Boston’s Top 100 Women-Led Businesses

Published on October 26, 2015

Top Women Led Business On Friday, October 23, Boston Globe Magazine and The Commonwealth Institute (TCI) announced their annual Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts. This is the second year that nonprofit organizations were included, and GBFB and its President and CEO, Catherine D’Amato, ranked #10!   Last year, we came in at #69 on the list, so this was a big accomplishment. Catherine and members of Team GBFB gathered at a breakfast event at the Seaport Boston Hotel on Friday to celebrate all the honorees. GBFB was recognized several times throughout the breakfast as an innovative and forward-thinking organization for using geo-mapping technology to identify food insecure areas in Eastern Massachusetts, allowing us to target those who need our help the most.   The full list of honorees was published in the Globe Magazine’s Women & Power Issue at   Catherine D’Amato was honored to be among these highly esteemed professional women in Boston.   “This honor was unexpected and I am humbled. The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) is a charitable business about reaching more people –children, women, men, elders–with nutritious food in the most efficient way. It’s wonderful that the way we are doing this is being recognized.”  

  “Our geomapping software has changed the way we do our business and we are able to track exactly where the need is and where the food is going. On behalf of the dedicated and talented team of GBFB, past and present, I gratefully accept this honor. Together, and with our partners, we will end hunger here.”   Congratulations to all of this year’s Top 100 Women-Led Business winners and thank you to everyone that supports our mission to end hunger here all year long!
