The Greater Boston Food Bank received a boost from Boston-area residents who turned out for its annual Step Into Summer fundraising event.
The event was organized by the food bank’s Kitchen Cabinet, which is co-chaired by Beacon Hill resident Sarah Biller, and consists of professionals in the Greater Boston area dedicated to ending hunger.
Biller joined her co-chairs Hannah G. Commoss, and Kirby Lunger, and nearly 100 guests at the annual fundraiser at the Harpoon Brewery Beer Hall this month. The money raised supports the Greater Boston Food Bank’s work to provide more than 23,000 meals for people throughout eastern Massachusetts.
The Kitchen Cabinet was founded in 2005 and its members engage friends, colleagues and neighbors to raise awareness and funding through events and volunteer opportunities.
Last year’s Step Into Summer event raised nearly $14,000, enough money to provide more than 30,000 meals.
