Super Hunger Brunch Features Ming Tsai

Over $60,000 raised by local diners to help feed those in need around Mass.


It's not every weekend that your brunch helps raise $60,000 to fight hunger--it does during Super Hunger Brunch. 

Wellesley took part in the Brunch, with Ming Tsai's Blue Ginger participating. Participating restaurants designed special brunch menus with fixed prices, ranging from $25 to $35 to $50 per meal. 

Across 21 restaurants, 1,500 diners chowed down over the weekend, a Greater Boston Food Bank press release said. The $60,000 raised will turn into over 140,000 meals for people in need around Eastern Mass. 

A GBFB release announcing the Brunch also noted that Tsai is both a longtime champions of The Greater Boston Food Bank, and served on the Super Hunger Brunch Culinary Committee.

Below is the full release from Greater Boston Food Bank: 

What’s better than a great brunch for a great cause?  More than 1,500 patrons gathered last weekend at 21 of the Boston area’s most celebrated restaurants to enjoy a special meal and help raise over $60,000 for The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB).  The funds generated by the 31st annual Super Hunger Brunch will enable GBFB to provide more than 140,000 meals for those in need throughout eastern Massachusetts.
