The Greater Boston Food Bank recently held its 13th annual Chain of Giving on Nov. 8. At the annual event, 1,200 turkeys were unloaded and passed hand to hand from truck to freezer.
Former New England Patriot Troy Brown joined this year’s chain along with Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito, Attorney General Maura Healey, state Treasurer Deb Goldberg and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh.
The GBFB is crucial in fighting food insecurity within the state. Last year, it shipped 62 million pounds of food equating to 55 million meals (35 percent of which was fresh produce) to local families in need.
