“Frankly, I’m outraged. I believe that food insecurity is at the root of a number of different problems that afflict people in our society, and there’s no excuse for it. It’s also a problem that’s not going away anytime soon,” says Ted Truscott, CEO of Columbia Threadneedle Investments.
Ted has also been a volunteer and donor to GBFB for more than 10 years, and has served on our Board of Directors since 2020. He’s passionate, not only about helping to provide food to people facing hunger, but about finding solutions.
“It’s one thing to be outraged, but at the end of the day, I want to do something to solve this problem.”
“It’s one thing to be outraged, but at the end of the day, I want to do something to solve this problem,” he says. “I believe I have a moral obligation to make a tangible difference. Giving back to the community is big part of who I am, and what my company is all about, as well. Supporting The Greater Boston Food Bank as a volunteer or donor is one of those tangible ways to make a big difference in people’s lives. At the end of the day, that’s what drives me. There’s nothing better in life than that.”
Thank you, Ted, for all you do for GBFB!
