Braving the Cold and Buried in Snow | The Greater Boston Food Bank
New England winters are always more difficult for those in need. The cold results in higher energy costs, making it difficult to keep up with bills to stay warm and to buy enough nutritious food to stay healthy. This winter has brought frigid temperatures, unprecedented volumes of snow and more complications for all. At The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB), we are busy working around snow storms to ensure we can keep up. We are grateful for your dedication, and your continued support is needed more than ever so we can help our neighbors in need through this rough winter. Learn how you can help to End Hunger Here.
Be an Advocate | The Greater Boston Food Bank
Each year, GBFB and its network of supporters raise our voices to advocate for increased Massachusetts Emergency Food Assistance Program (MEFAP) funding. In 2014, MEFAP funds provided more than 16 million meals, or 12% of all meals provided. This year, the Food Bank Coalition of Massachusetts (The Greater Boston Food Bank, The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts, Worcester County Food Bank and Merrimack Valley Food Bank) is advocating for an increase in MEFAP funding to $20 million, which could enable GBFB to provide another 7 million meals.

Messaging and Perceptions Survey | The Greater Boston Food Bank
As part of our continued efforts to assess our work, we are conducting a short survey. The survey results will provide insights on how to improve our messaging focus to better serve our community and to support our mission to End Hunger Here. We value each of our supporters who make our work possible, and invite you to participate. The survey will only take five minutes to complete and all responses are anonymous.

Super Hunger Brunch 2015
On January 24 and 25, GBFB and restaurants around Boston hosted the 32nd Super Hunger Brunch. Thank you to all who joined us to Brunch for a Cause. We are still waiting for final results, but want to share some photos from the great weekend.
