Many families and individuals found themselves struggling to have enough to eat for the first time in their lives this past year because of the pandemic. For those who can’t always afford enough food, the nutritious protein, produce and dairy items—the items they need most—are usually too expensive to buy in the grocery store.
That’s why GBFB is committed to distributing high-quality, nutritious food—helping the people we serve stay healthy. You can help us by supporting our Spring for Meals campaign this March (learn more below). Thank you for supporting our mission during these difficult times. Together, we can end hunger here.
