Boston Charity Event: Super Hunger Brunch for the Greater Boston Food Bank

Greater Boston Food Bank: Hunger Brunch

Greater Boston Food Bank: Hunger Brunch

From Saturday, January 28th through Sunday, January 29th of 2012 there will be the Super Hunger Brunch in Boston which will benefit The Greater Boston Food Bank! This is an event that takes place each January over the last two decades to help fight against the hunger struggle that so many around us are up against. For example, in eastern Massachusetts a third of all families admit their children are not getting ample amounts of healthy food and nutrition because of the horrible truth that they are unable to afford it.

The corporations that have generously donated their goods and resources to this cause are Karlssons Gold, Pete & Gerrys Heirloom Eggs, and Garelick Farms. The following chefs; Jody Adams of Rialto and Trade, Gordon Hamersley of Hamersleys Bistro, Tony Maws of Craigie on Main, Ming Tsai of Blue Ginger, and finally, Brooke Vosika of the Four Season Hotel Boston and the Bristol Lounge will also be donating their time and energy by working with products from the three corporations mentioned above and will construct these delicious brunch delicacies for all of those involved.

There will be 20 restaurants participating over the two days. The shape that this fundraising event will take will be divided into a format of three price ranges; $25, $35 and $50. Each of the 20 restaurants scattered throughout the city have been allocated to just one of these price categories to offer only a brunch to participants who buy a brunch gift certificate valued at one of the same three price levels. For each of the two days there will be different restaurants representing just one the price ranges of $25, $35, and $50.

Over the years there has been a total of around $181,000 raised during this occasion which has totalled roughly 456,000 meals to those who are in a dire struggle. This is sure to be a wonderful way to enjoy a weekend brunch and know that all proceeds for the event will go to those who truly need a meal more than most. We hope that this next event is the most successful to date!
