What We Do

Together, with our partners and supporters, we are creating a healthy and hunger free Eastern Massachusetts.

Ending Hunger

One in ten in our community does not know where their next meal is coming from, and the need continues to grow. We have witnessed a 21% increase in the need for food assistance in recent years, but we are working toward the solution.

How We Work

With the help of our partners and supporters, GBFB acquires and distributes food that enables local food pantries, soup kitchens, community health centers and other partners to do their vital work of providing nutritious food and meals.
