Food and Fund Drive

Help us end hunger in Eastern Massachusetts

Fund Drive

Hosting a fundraising campaign with friends, family, or colleagues is an exciting and fun way to make a lasting impact on GBFB’s work. Your support helps us acquire and distribute more nutritious food to our hunger-relief network across Eastern Massachusetts.

Fundraising for GBFB is easy! We will provide you with a personalized fundraising webpage to make collecting donations and spreading the word as easy as sharing on you social media or sending an email.

Here’s how to get started:

  • Gather your friends, family, and colleagues who are interested in helping GBFB end hunger in Eastern Massachusetts. Tell them about GBFB’s impact in our region.
  • Create and register a fundraiser to help raise awareness and funds for food insecure neighbors. Your participation will help individuals and families by providing them fresh, healthy food.
  • Reach out to your networks to secure support for your fundraising campaign. Don’t forget to share with your supporters that 91 cents of every dollar goes directly to supporting our hunger relief efforts.

We are here to help make your fundraising campaign a success. For tips and resources to help you with your fundraiser, check out our Peer-to-Peer Toolkit.

Interested in donating fresh, healthy items (like fruits and vegetables) to GBFB? Try hosting a #GIVEHEALTHY food drive! Once you register, a webpage will be set up for your drive, and you can share the link with your group. The items available for donation will be based on GBFB’s needs, and all of the food will be delivered to GBFB at no cost! Learn more about how it works and register for a #GIVEHEALTHY drive.


YouGiveGoods provides a customized corporate giving event by raising the most needed food and personal hygiene items for GBFB. YouGiveGoods’ easy to use platform allows your employees to shop online and support your event. A tax receipt is provided to every donor at the time of purchase for their records and all donations are delivered right to GBFB’s warehouse! Through YouGiveGood’s Giveback Program, YouGiveGoods will donate a 5% cash donation to GBFB based on the retail value of all items purchased as part of any sponsored drive.

Food Drive

In an effort to enforce social distancing standards and limit traffic in our lobbies and warehouses, we are no longer accepting walk-in food donations. This decision was made for the safety of our staff, volunteers, and partner agencies. We hope you will consider making a financial donation instead.

If you have already organized a food drive or have food you’re interested in donating, visit our Need Food page to find a partner agency in your area. We recommend calling ahead to find out if they’re accepting donations.
