A representative from the Greater Boston Food Bank will be on hand at our Nov. 19 meeting at Vertex in Boston to collect donations. Donations may also be made online at www.gbfb.org/neafp. Thank you in advance for joining us in this worthy endeavor. A $20 donation will provide 5 nutritious holiday meals. Monetary donations provide the greatest impact as every dollar you donate allows GBFB to purchase and distribute an incredible $5.09 worth of highly nutritious food.
The New England AFP has partnered with the Greater Boston Food Bank to collect donations for holiday meals for less fortunate families in our community. The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) is New England’s largest hunger-relief organization. It distributes more than 50 million pounds of food and grocery products annually to a network of nearly 550 member hunger-relief agencies and 40 direct service program sites throughout the nine counties in eastern Massachusetts. As many as 420,000 people – including children, veterans, and seniors – benefit from the stable supply of nutritious food each year.
