To help aid the rising demand for food assistance in the community, Norfolk Kitchen & Bath has donated $5,000 to the Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB).
Hunger Relief During COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic caused an unprecedented rise in the need for hunger-relief efforts, as people lost their jobs and costs for essentials skyrocketed. Demand for food rose over 50% in 2020 from the year prior and many food banks struggled to meet the needs of their community. The GBFB serves over 190 communities in the Greater Boston area & has delivered over 80 MILLION meals since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020.

The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) is the largest hunger-relief organization in New England and one of the largest food banks in the country. They are committed to providing three healthy meals a day to every person in need in Eastern Massachusetts, while also supporting healthy lives and communities.
