In this unprecedented time, our 2020 Women Fighting Hunger committee remains committed more than ever to our mission to end hunger here in Eastern Massachusetts and has stepped up to support GBFB’s COVID-19 response efforts, in addition to our annual breakfast fundraising.
As GBFB is responding to a rising demand for food during this crisis, we expect the need to continue to grow as unemployment numbers rise and our partner agencies continue to see more new clients or current clients with increased need. As the numbers grow, we expect that many people across Eastern Massachusetts will be seeking food assistance for the first time in their lives.
In response, we have created a Women Fighting Hunger COVID-19 Team fundraising page to support the efforts to continue to provide healthy food to our neighbors in need. Our goal is to raise $100,000.
To seed the efforts, UBS Financial Services and DentaQuest Partnership for Oral Health Advancement will be matching gifts up to $20,000!
