BOSTON – February 8, 2017

“The Greater Boston Food Bank thanks Senator Elizabeth Warren for the generous donation of a portion of the net proceeds of her upcoming book. Senator Warren’s support will help the more than 500,000 people across Eastern Massachusetts who on a daily basis don’t know where their next meal is coming from. We are counting on Senator Warren, and we call on all members of Congress, to remain committed to the longstanding bipartisan conviction that nobody in this country should go hungry.”
