This past weekend, a group of the BBA’s New Lawyers Section Committee spent their Saturday volunteering at the Greater Boston Food Bank. The volunteers helped out the GBFB by inspecting, sorting, and packaging food and other grocery products to be distributed to local food pantries, shelters, and various local hunger relief programs. The GBFB aims to help end hunger by providing at least one meal a day to every person in need in Eastern Massachusetts. In 2014, the Greater Boston Food Bank distributed over 50 million pounds of food which is enough to provide over 40 million healthy meals to those in need.

Check out the photos below to see a glimpse of the volunteer’s day at the Food Bank:
