Due to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, Food for Thought will be going virtual this year. The health of our guests is of utmost importance. We look forward to celebrating with you virtually!

Every November, Boston Medical Center hosts its annual Food for Thought dinner—one of its oldest events—celebrating the successes of the hospital’s pediatric programs and raising critical funds to ensure it continues to meet the increasing needs of Boston’s children and families.
