Uniting to End Hunger: GBFB’s Annual Community Day

Published on September 26, 2023

In September, our Team at GBFB celebrated the return of our annual Community Day since the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, the tradition held even greater significance, especially since 1 in 3 residents of Massachusetts currently experiences food insecurity. Returning to our partner agencies throughout Eastern Massachusetts for a day of service was a timely reminder of why our mission and purpose to end hunger is vital.  

These partner agencies serve as important lifelines for our neighbors who rely on them to access meals. 


Our GBFB team dove into the Community Day, joining forces with volunteers and partner agency teams. Together, we tackled various tasks, from packing nutritious meals to loading trucks with essential supplies. The sense of unity and purpose that radiated throughout the day was infectious. Interactions with fellow volunteers and partner agency members strengthened our commitment to ending hunger in Eastern Massachusetts.

We extend our gratitude to our partner agencies for our partnership and their dedication to uplifting our neighbors. Their commitment to providing food and resources continues to inspire our GBFB team during the holidays, and all year long. Together, we can end hunger here.
