BOSTON – Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker and Lt. Governor Karyn Polito were joined by Governor-elect Maura Healey, Lt. Governor-elect Kim Driscoll, and Boston Mayor Michelle Wu to celebrate the return of Greater Boston Food Bank’s annual Chain of Giving event in Boston on November 10.

The event had been canceled in 2020 and 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Thursday, the chain moved more than 1,200 turkeys for the holiday season.
