In whom can you find multigenerational hunger-relief support, an appreciation for operational efficiency, and hearts made of pure gold? The O’Brien family from Lexington!

Over the past few years, Lisa and Sean O’Brien have played a role in ending hunger here. Lisa is a member of GBFB’s Women Fighting Hunger, and she regularly volunteers in our warehouse. Sean is a member of GBFB’s Board of Advisors.

For the O’Briens, ending hunger is a family affair. Their three children get involved by coordinating school group volunteer sessions during the year and by volunteering alongside their grandparents over the summer at the Family Pantry on Cape Cod. Lisa got involved with GBFB directly when she learned that it supplied fresh product to the Family Pantry.

“I wish everyone could take a tour of the GBFB warehouse and meet Team GBFB,” Lisa shares, “You appreciate the effort, time, thought, and care that is put into everything that they do.”

“For me,” says Sean, “GBFB is working on a problem that shouldn’t exist, they do it well, and they do it at scale. I’m really impressed with GBFB’s warehouse and distribution capability, especially with the increased demand from Covid. We are happy to be a part of it.”

“It may be cliche, but we are all on this earth together. We have to do what we can to help each other.” Lisa continues, “We love supporting GBFB because we know that the work they do makes such an impact for those in need.”

As exemplified by the O’Briens, GBFB can continue to distribute hundreds of nutritious meals to over 600,000 people in need across Eastern Massachusetts because of the dedication found within our community. Thank you for your support—together, we can end hunger here.
