BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — In the wake of rising prices at grocery stores across the Commonwealth, The Greater Boston Food Bank said it doesn't take much to help those in need this holiday season.

With just over 7 million people living in Massachusetts, the GBFB said that 1 in 8 residents need assistance in getting food.

"For $25 you can provide a complete holiday meal for an entire family," said GBFB's President and CEO Catherine D'Amato to WBZ's Chris Fama.

D'Amato said that the GBFB is seeing a 20% to 30% rise in food store prices from disrupted supply chains, making the tail end of 2021 a prime time for holiday giving.

"This Thanksgiving is looking like it will be the most expensive in the history of the holiday- we want to be a part of a solution, so we're asking people to donate $25 to feed a family of four," said D'Amato.
