GBFB strives to provide our neighbors in need in Eastern Massachusetts with the access to three healthy meals a day. The importance of our mission—and our desire to always do more to help those who depend on us—have driven us to operate to the highest standards of cost-effectiveness. We use technology to achieve the greatest efficiency in our warehouse and put sound nutrition at the forefront of everything we do. As a result, when you donate to GBFB, every dollar supplies two nutritious meals, including fresh produce.

Thanks to our many supporters over the years, we are thought leaders in hunger relief. Our compassion extends to the environment as well; our distribution center has been internationally recognized for its LEED Silver Certification.
