From the Executive Director & Board President

Dear Friends,

More than ever in the history of the Food Bank, last fiscal year exhibited the power of community and our commitment to work together to create a hunger-free Western Massachusetts. In our 41st year of existence, we picked up and moved our belongings from our small but versatile home in Hatfield to our much larger and more efficient new Food Bank in Chicopee. So many stakeholders from across our region rallied behind us to raise the funds necessary to build a state-of-the-art food distribution center, and to successfully relocate to it last September on schedule and within budget. We look back in amazement at this accomplishment and know we couldn’t have done it without you – our member food pantries and meal sites, donors of funds and food, staff, volunteers, legislators, and many other business and community partners.
