The Greater Boston Food Bank is wonderfully efficient, using top-notch technology and infrastructure to distribute donated food, and food that would otherwise be wasted, to pantries, shelters, and other food assistance programs throughout eastern Massachusetts. They feed more people per dollar by using scale and media connections to pull massive corporate donations, and are pioneers in the distribution of fresh produce to the hungry. GBFB isn't a feelgood mill for white-guilt-ridden students to work off their privilege to dubious effect. It's a well-oiled machine, and it works. It's what Massachusetts needs.

I think it is shocking that the CEO receives $380K + fringe benefits. She is highlighted every year on Chanel 5 as an overly paid CEO.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I used it when I was in Social Services but didn't realize the huge salary the CEO was getting for feeding the poor.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hire a new CEO at a respectable but lower salary. This one is milking the poor. It operates well; however, could do just as well with someone who was more committed to the poor than their own salary and fringe benefits.
