Summer is a particularly difficult time for families facing hunger, since kids, teens, and even college students are not receiving regular school meals. The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB), in partnership with MathWorks, the leading developer of mathematical computing software for engineers and scientists, is committed to distributing healthy meals to students and families this summer so they can continue to grow, learn, and thrive.
Growing Healthy Futures: Sponsored by MathWorks will benefit all of GBFB’s summer children and family hunger relief initiatives, ensuring students have access to enough food during the summer months. MathWorks will generously match all gifts, dollar-for-dollar, up to ONE MILLION DOLLARS to multiply our impact! Our collective efforts will sustain and bolster the GBFB network and allow communities most impacted by the pandemic to re-emerge stronger.
Join our Growing Healthy Futures campaign by donating or starting an individual or team fundraiser to help us improve the lives of families across our communities this summer. For tips and resources to help you with your fundraiser, check out our Peer-to-Peer Toolkit!
In addition to raising the necessary funding to meet the critical demand, Growing Healthy Futures will also build awareness and support for several of GBFB’s programs and initiatives that prioritize children, students, and families, including:
