Hosting a fundraising campaign with friends, family, or colleagues is a fun and exciting way to make a lasting impact on The Greater Boston Food Bank’s (GBFB’s) work. Celebrating a birthday or graduation? Set up a peer-to-peer fundraiser to bring attention to the issue of hunger. Your support helps us acquire and provide more nutritious food for our hunger-relief network across Eastern Massachusetts.
To set up peer-to-peer fundraiser in support of GBFB, all it takes is a few simple steps! Our fundraising platform is easy-to-use, gives you the space to explain why our cause matters to you, and helps you communicate with supporters.
How to Get Started
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.
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.
We are here to help make your food or fund drive a success. If you have any questions, please contact us at 617.427.5200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
