Since opening the first City Feed on Boylston Street in 2000, City Feed has made it a point to support many of the local organizations and businesses that make our neighborhood a better place. Here are a few of City Feed’s favorites–check them out!

Local Feature

Girls Rock Boston


Girls Rock Campaign Boston (GRCB) is a female-operated, non-profit summer program for girls age 8-17. During each the weeklong session, girls are immersed in the world of rock: from learning instruments & vocals, forming a band, and songwriting—even self defense! GRCB’s empowers girls to believe in themselves by providing a supportive community that fosters self-expression, confidence and collaboration through musical education and performance. The sessions close with a live rock showcase at a local venue.

City Feed and Supply is proud to support GRCB and their hard work to “End rocklessness in Boston girls youth forever!”
