Throughout the last 20 years, the Can & Cash Drive has raised nearly $250,000 in cash donations and collected more than 160,000 pounds of food for The Food Bank. The Greater Boston Food Bank distributes more than 34 million pounds of food and grocery products annually to approximately 550 member hunger-relief agencies and 30 Food Bank direct service programs throughout eastern Massachusetts in a dedicated partnership to end hunger in our region.
