The Greater Boston Food Bank hosts and sponsors a variety of special events throughout the year that are designed to raise awareness of hunger in our community as well as much-needed funding to support our work.
Volunteers play a critical role in ending hunger by giving their time and talent to support The Greater Boston Food Bank. Last year, more than 25,000 volunteers worked a total of 62,000 hours, a contribution worth more than $1,000,000.
Our annual Banquet is a cornerstone of our fundraising efforts. We transform our warehouse into a beautiful event space that provides an insider’s look at how The Greater Boston Food Bank distributes over 46 million pounds.
The Boston Red Sox, their families and fans are among the most dedicated and generous donors to GBFB. The Red Sox Wives' Annual Cash N Can Drive in early August provides critical funding and food donations to help end hunger in eastern Massachusetts.
