Spring Harvest

The digital version of GBFB's newsletter

It’s been a little over a year since the pandemic brought historic levels of unemployment and food insecurity to Eastern Massachusetts. In that time, friends like you have helped GBFB sustain an incredible response to the historic demand for food across our network and service area. Thank you for your unwavering commitment to ensuring our neighbors in need didn’t go hungry.

This is my 25th year with GBFB, and I am humbled to be spending it in your company. The kindness you demonstrate toward our neighbors in need inspires me every day. I have never been more confident that, together, we can and will end hunger here.
