Everyone has a critical role in ending hunger. Play yours by learning about the issues, and joining your voice with The Greater Boston Food Bank to advocate for government support of hunger-relief efforts in eastern Massachusetts, the Commonwealth and throughout the country.
MEFAP, a critical piece of state legislation that must be voted on each year in the state budget, provides nutritious foods and locally-grown fresh produce to 800,000 citizens of the Commonwealth in need. GBFB oversees the contract to purchase these food products from local farmers and vendors who produce and sell eggs, dairy products, fresh fruits and vegetables along with shelf stable commodities.
