Our Results

Our work enables the adults, children and seniors we help to learn, work, hope and achieve greater success, independence and dignity.

Thanks to the dedication and generosity of donors, volunteers and partners, we are changing the lives of many for the better. We believe that everyone has a role in ending hunger in our community and that a hunger-free Eastern Massachusetts is possible. By supporting GBFB, you help families across Eastern Massachusetts get enough to eat every day. View a summary of GBFB’s impact last year.

GBFB strives to provide at least One Meal a Day to those in need in Eastern Massachusetts. 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 three 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.
