Gold Medal Bakery was founded on honesty, integrity, and good will. Gold Medal Bakery is committed to giving back to the community and helping our neighbors in need.
Fall River, MA is home to our Corporate Offices, Baking Facilities, and Thrift store, and has been for several generations. This is where we have provided economic growth and employment opportunities to several local families. It is no surprise that several of our employees have recruited family members to join the GMB team. We are proud and honored to have employees that support and care about our community.
Food brings people together and is what fuels us everyday. As a large food manufacturer, we have a passion for helping the fight against hunger. We partner with the Greater Boston Food Bank and several soup kitchens and churches in the Fall River community. Each year we donate over 250,000 pounds of bread to food banks.
