For this Thanksgiving, International Place hosted a canned goods food drive in conjunction with the Greater Boston Food Bank. The Greater Boston Food Bank assists in assuring that healthy food is distributed across Eastern Massachusetts through 600 partner agencies and direct distribution sites such as food pantries, soup kitchens and meal programs, and senior centers. These agencies feed needly families over the holidays and throughout the year.

Donating is simple. Just pick up a few extra canned foods next time you shop or take a can or two from your home.

Please remember that glass containers, baby formula and perishable foods cannot be accepted.

If you would prefer to make a direct monetary contribution to The Greater Boston Food Bank, please visit for donation information.

Thank you to everyone who was able to give and for your continued support.
