Thanksgiving Harvest

The digital version of GBFB's newsletter

Things can be difficult for those struggling with hunger on a holiday that’s all about sitting around the table and eating delicious food with friends and family. The effects of the pandemic are still taking a significant toll on our community, and many families will be experiencing food insecurity for the first time this winter.

The theme of this issue is gratitude; my gratitude for you and the community of support rallying behind our mission to end hunger here. Thank you for your time, support, and your generosity. Because of our community, we can continue to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors in need this holiday season – and throughout the entire year.

Together, we can end hunger here.
