Thank you, GBFB Partners!

Published on November 9, 2022


For two decades, GBFB has been giving awards to its partners who support our work. It’s one way that we say thank you to the companies, organizations, individual donors, public advocates, food pantries, hunger-relief partners, volunteers and many others who are helping us to reach our goal to end hunger in Eastern Massachusetts.

William Bigelow, Chief Operating Officer for Blount Fine Foods, accepts the Partner Appreciation Award from Cheryl Schondek, Chief Operating Officer at The Greater Boston Food Bank.

The acknowledgements range from the Founders Award, which recognizes an individual or organization who demonstrates extraordinary leadership after GBFB’s Founder, Kip Tiernan, to Individual Volunteer of the Year—an individual or group that has volunteered for at least two years and has had a significant impact on GBFB.

These 2022 recipients personify the method and mission of GBFB. Thank you, and congratulations to all who were honored this year:
