Catherine D'Amato
As President and CEO of The Greater Boston Food Bank, Catherine D'Amato runs New England's largest hunger-relief organization as an extremely efficient and effective nonprofit food distribution business. Under D'Amato's vision and leadership, The Greater Boston Food Bank has transformed into a nearly $50 million charitable business - an organization that now leads the region in getting nutritious food to more than 600 hunger-relief organizations that annually serve more than 320,000 hungry residents of the nine counties and 190 cities and towns of eastern Massachusetts. D'Amato's work has been recognized with a 2008 Pinnacle Award from the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, and she was also listed as one of the top 50 most powerful people in Boston in the May 2008 issue of Boston magazine. Her professional activities include serving as the Co-Chair of the Massachusetts Nutrition Board, on the Board of Directors of the Boston Foundation and the Massachusetts Food Association, and on the board of America's Second Harvest - The Nation's Food Bank Network. She has served on other boards, including the Newmarket Business Association, the Boston Public Market Association, and the Human Rights Campaign. D'Amato earned a Bachelor of Arts in Theology from the University of San Francisco and Business Management Certificates from Harvard University and Smith College.

Catherine D'Amato
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 35 years, coming to The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) 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 just under 9 million pounds to over 51 million pounds of food per year.
With the support of GBFB's dedicated board and team, and the generosity and commitment of donors and volunteers, D'Amato is leading the implementation of a new and ambitious strategic plan, "End Hunger Here," that will increase food distribution by enough to provide 45 million meals by 2016. That's enough to provide at least one meal a day to those at risk of hunger in eastern Massachusetts.
"Achieving that goal will require everyone to play their role in ending hunger in our community," continues D'Amato. "With our member hunger-relief agencies already working beyond their capacity to meet the region's growing hunger problem, GBFB is expanding its own food distribution programs, and collaborating with public and private partners to provide healthy food to those who earn too much to receive government food assistance, but still can't afford to feed themselves or their families."
"Food banks are evolving to meet ever-increasing needs," she concludes.
