As part of the MBA Women International Distinguished Speaker Series,
Catherine D'Amato, President and CEO of The Greater Boston Food Bank, will be speaking about her experiences running this organization.
Catherine D'Amato has been in the food business since her Italian immigrant parents opened a restaurant when she was eight. She's been a leader in the nation's food bank network for 32 years, coming to The Greater Boston Food Bank as Executive Director in 1995, and named President and CEO in 1997. Under her leadership and guidance, GBFB's distribution of food has increased from 8 to over 40 million pounds of food per year. Today, the organization is a $60 million charitable food business, with nearly 550 agency partners, and a new, state-of-the-art food distribution warehouse in the heart of Boston. Last year, GBFB distributed enough food to feed as many as 545,000 people in need. (For more information visit http://gbfb.org/our-mission/about-gbfb.php.)
Catherine will join us for an informal reception following the talk, and light refreshments will be served.
