Fall Harvest

The digital version of GBFB's newsletter

At a time when hunger-relief is critically important, I encourage you to continue making your voice heard. Anyone can make a difference by donating, volunteering, or raising awareness about hunger on social media. Every action counts, especially at a time when so many are at risk.

When you support The Greater Boston Food Bank, you are ensuring communities around us continue to not only survive – but thrive. A great example of your support is graduate student Mariela, who relied on deliveries of fresh fruits, vegetables, and protein to get through the pandemic. You can read her story in this issue.

Thank you for your commitment to our mission. Together, we can end hunger here.
