Asst. Director of Business and Data Analytics
The Greater Boston Food BankPronouns: he/him/his
Daniel Taitelbaum has been with The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) since 2006. GBFB began using Esri's GIS software in 2011 and started using it more strategically under Daniel’s leadership soon thereafter, developing a strategy to identify "underserved" communities for GBFB to target its distribution and capacity building efforts. Daniel's focus on data-driven solutions became all the more critical for GBFB during the pandemic. In Massachusetts, food insecurity was estimated to have increased by 59%, the highest increase in the nation. To understand the impact of this increase, changes within the food assistance network, and to optimize GBFB's capacity to reach those in need, GBFB created the Business and Data Analytics team under Daniel's leadership.
