The Greater Boston Food Bank and its Women Fighting Hunger Committee welcome the return of our signature networking breakfast where we gather to acknowledge our commitment to End Hunger Here in Eastern Massachusetts. Join us as we celebrate the resiliency and impact of the workers, volunteers and communities who continue to help meet the increased need for healthy, nutritious food.

This year we honor Joanna Travis, Chair, The Board of Directors, The Greater Boston Food Bank

Joanna is a longtime supporter of The Greater Boston Food Bank and played a critical role during the COVID-19 pandemic. Her leadership helped GBFB remain flexible and find solutions during uncertain and rapidly changing times. We are thankful for her dedication to the organization, its staff, partners, and the Eastern MA community.

Women Fighting Hunger is a compassionate group of business and community leaders working with The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) to end hunger here. Over the last 11 years, the committee and supporters have created a philanthropic movement to improve the health and well-being of the communities they live in.

Since 2010, the dedicated members of Women Fighting Hunger have helped to raise awareness around our mission to end hunger here, and together have raised enough to provide millions of healthy meals to people struggling with hunger.
