Women Fighting Hunger

Join us for our first Women Fighting Hunger Fall Campaign

Women Fighting Hunger


In lieu of the 11th annual breakfast to support The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB), Women Fighting Hunger is raising funds to support women and families in our community negatively impacted by the persisting effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Your gift to GBFB will invest in purchasing healthy foods, staffing, facility needs, and the network of emergency food partners. Until the end of the calendar year, GBFB anticipates spending $6 million on food alone, an unprecedented level.

Every gift of $250 will come with a first-of-its-kind Women Fighting Hunger sign (see images below) to showcase your support.
