Fiscal Year 2023 Quarter 3 Impact Report

By The Greater Boston Food Bank | Organization

With the public health emergency of the pandemic is behind us, the hunger crisis in Masachusetts persists today. GBFB collaborated wth Mass General Brigham's Center for Healthy Weight and Nurtition Equity and MA's Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to release its third annual statewide food equity and access report with an exclusive story in the Boston Globe.

Among other key findings, it estimates that 1 in 3, or 1.8 million adults, reported household food insecurity in 2022. New this year, the report also points to child hunger rates of more than 50% among Hispanic and LGBTQ+ households amidst the historic cost of food and conclusion of pandemic benefits. There is record hunger in our community, with our neighbors struggling to put food on the table. They often hve to choose between food and rent, utilities, or other bills, as noted in Catherine D'Amato and GBFB's Health and Research Advisor, Dr. Lauren Fiechtner's op-ed.
