Project Bread, the state’s leading antihunger organization, is pleased to welcome Gabrielle Farrell as a Communications Associate in Public Relations. In her new role, Gabrielle will conduct media and community outreach in hopes of making the public aware of the new solutions in hunger relief spearheaded by Project Bread.
“I always knew that my purpose was to help others,” said Farrell, a native of Mattapan. “I’ve done The Walk for Hunger and now it’s a thrilling to know that I can now help secure access to healthy food within my own community and throughout the state through Project Bread’s innovative approach to hunger relief.”
Gabrielle was a Crimson Summer Academy scholar at Harvard University in 2004. She received a full-tuition leadership scholarship from the Posse Foundation in 2008 and is mentored by Diane Patrick, First Lady of Massachusetts. (The Posse Foundation was one of the ten organizations to which President Obama donated his Noble Peace Prize award.)
While working toward her bachelor’s degree in Political Science and French at Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania, she participated in the Boston Lawyers Group, interning at both Ropes & Gray LLP and Goodwin Procter LLP.
“We’re pleased to welcome Gabrielle to our award-winning Communications team,” said Ellen Parker, executive director of Project Bread. “She has an intuitive understanding of the importance of our work and is the kind of young leader we want to mentor and promote.”
