Catherine D'Amato

president, CEO, Greater Boston Food Bank

Since 1995, The Greater Boston Food Bank has operated under the leadership of Catherine D'Amato, a seasoned food banker and impassioned advocate for the hungry. D'Amato has a solid background in non-profit management as well as experience serving on the board of America's Second Harvest, the national network for domestic food distribution. During her tenure at The Food Bank, D'Amato has demonstrated a consistent commitment not only to increasing the amount of food made available to the hungry, but also to insuring that the food they receive is nutritious and of the highest quality. The Greater Boston Food Bank is a non-profit clearinghouse for donated food, which is distributed to a network of 750 food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, daycare centers for children at risk, and other charitable feeding agencies throughout nine counties in eastern Massachusetts. The Greater Boston Food Bank is one of New England's largest hunger relief organizations, annually distributing 18 million pounds of food, which is the equivalent of almost 14 million meals.
