The 2023 Annual Breakfast put the 7,000 square foot warehouse of the future Seacoast Regional Food Hub on full display for more than 250 guests on Tuesday, October 24.
The event, ONT's only major fundraiser of the year, raised more than $100,000 to fund ONT's markets, warehouse and other programs.
Highlights of the morning included:
Welcome remarks from Kim Rock, Chief Operating Officer for presenting sponsor Institution for Savings
An update from ONT Executive Director Lyndsey Haight on the state of food security in the region and the exciting opportunities we have with the arrival of the Seacoast Food Hub.
The awarding of our 2023 Community Champions - the Greater Boston Food Bank and do-it-all volunteer and outgoing board member Eve Lee - and remarks from GBFB Chief Operating Officer Cheryl Schondek and Eve, who sent her acceptance speech by video from Malaysia.
And before we let everyone on their way, ONT Board Chairman Mike Wendt helped us build connections in the crowd and pledge actions moving forward to mobilize our communities and bring us a step closer to a food secure region!
Thank you to all who joined us in-person and supported us from afar. We look forward to seeing you next year!
