About the Ticket Supplier: Greater Boston Food Bank

The Greater Boston Food Bank’s mission is to end hunger in eastern Massachusetts. Our objective is to distribute enough food to provide at least one meal a day to those in need.

The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) is the largest hunger-relief organization in New England and among the largest food banks in the country. Last year, we distributed 48 million pounds of food, enough to provide healthy meals to as many as 545,000 people. We are committed to increasing our food distribution in 2014 to provide at least ONE MEAL A DAY to every person in need in eastern Massachusetts.

GBFB acquires food through food industry product donations, food drives and financial contributions that enable us to purchase additional high nutrient quality food. We also benefit from the generosity of over 25,000 volunteers annually who help to sort and distribute donated food products.

GBFB works to acquire, store, organize and distribute food through local food pantries, community meal programs, homeless and residential shelters, youth programs, senior centers, and day-care centers embedded in communities throughout the nine counties of eastern Massachusetts. GBFB’s food assistance locator provides an easy way for people in need to find help nearby. GBFB also distributes food directly to those in need through dedicated programs that serve particularly vulnerable groups, such as seniors and children.

Since 2009, GBFB has operated out of a state-of-the-art, 117,000 square foot food distribution facility, the Yawkey Distribution Center, located in the Newmarket section of Boston.

The Greater Boston Food Bank is a member of Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization.
