Sustainer Circle

Our Sustainer Circle is made up of families or individuals who give monthly to help end hunger here.
Henry and Lisa Chen of Brookline chose to become Sustainers at GBFB to make a difference for those facing hunger in their community. Read their story on our blog.

There are more than 1,000 generous members of our Sustainers Circle who give monthly to support our work to end hunger in Eastern Massachusetts. Join Us.

Your Sustainers Circle gift will add up to a big difference for our hungry neighbors. Make a positive impact today!

Sustainer Program benefits

  • Welcome letter detailing program benefits
  • Quarterly Harvest e-newsletter and periodic updates by email — but no other direct mail appeals
  • A copy of our Year in Review Infographic, highlighting the goals and initiatives you’ve helped us achieve
  • The opportunity to give an additional calendar year-end gift

Set up giving the best way for you! Sustainers Circle donors can give monthly or quarterly and can take advantage of any matching gifts their employers offer. Donors can mail checks, make a donation directly from their bank (this eliminates any processing fees), or charge a credit card.

Mobile Market Volunteer Opportunity in Somerville
Saturday, May 13, 2017 | 8:00am – 10:30am
GBFB’s Somerville Mobile Market, 1366- 1374 Broadway, Somerville

Mobile Markets enable GBFB to deliver high-quality, perishable food directly to partner sites in order to reach isolated communities and populations at high-risk of hunger. This food is brought in on our refrigerated trucks and set up on tables in the style of a farmer’s market. Volunteers assist with all aspects of unloading, set up, distribution, and breakdown. All volunteers must be 16 years of age or older. Volunteers under 18 require an adult chaperone.

Volunteer Opportunity at The Greater Boston Food Bank
Saturday, June 10, 2017 | 9:30am – 12:00pm
The Greater Boston Food Bank, 70 South Bay Ave., Boston

Volunteers at The Greater Boston Food Bank play a critical role in helping to end hunger. Volunteers sort through donated product by type while checking for quality so that when food enters our warehouse it is organized and ready to be distributed. All volunteers must be 16 years of age or older. Volunteers under 18 require an adult chaperone. GBFB is located at 70 South Bay Avenue in Boston. Free parking is available.

Volunteer Opportunity at the Pearl Street Cupboard & Cafe
