GBFB: A Beacon of Hope

Issue: Thanksgiving 2023

As I gather with my family and friends this upcoming holiday season, I will be giving thanks and thinking about so many blessings from this past year. I’m grateful to our network of 600 food distribution partners who work tirelessly to feed our community. Thanks to them—so many families will be enjoying a meal this holiday.

Many thanks to Team GBFB for their unwavering commitment to our mission. Their dedication to our Eastern Massachusetts community—inspires me every day. As you read this issue, you’ll learn about Community Day, an annual GBFB tradition. Our team members spent an afternoon with agency partners across our service area—loading trucks, unloading, sorting, and assembling meal packs and serving food. It’s another meaningful way that GBFB supports our partners to help serve our most vulnerable neighbors.

We simply cannot end hunger here unless we work together. That’s why we depend on generous donors like you to help us purchase the healthy food needed to fuel our communities, and dedicated volunteers and corporate partners like Liberty Mutual. Thanks to your generosity, we’re able to feed our neighbors this holiday season and throughout the year. Best wishes to you this holiday season.
