Food is Medicine

For seven years, and in partnership with the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, we’ve hosted a Food Is Medicine fundraising event at the Food Bank to raise awareness and funding to help end hunger across Eastern Massachusetts.

In 2020, the COVID-19 crisis made it impossible for us to welcome supporters to the Food Bank. While we won’t be gathering in-person, Food Is Medicine, led by Dr. Allen Hamdan, is raising funds in support of GBFB’s Hunger Free Holidays campaign to help provide complete holiday meals to families in need.
