Thank you for making 2022 our most successful event yet! With your support, we raised over $665,000 to support our neighbors in need. See Photo Gallery from the 2022 Women Fighting Hunger Breakfast.

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 13 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.
