The Greater Boston Food Bank

The New England Produce Council is proud to help support 
the tremendous efforts of the staff and community volunteers 
of The Greater Boston Food Bank

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

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, they distributed more than 54 million pounds of food, enough to provide healthy meals to as many as 545,000 people. They are committed to increasing our food distribution to provide at least ONE MEAL A DAY to every person in need in eastern Massachusetts. Their progress toward this goal is documented by town on their website's interactive map.

GBFB acquires food through food industry product donations, food drives, and financial contributions that enables them to purchase additional high nutrient quality food. They 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.
