MBI is an Eastern Massachusetts service body of Overeaters Anonymous. We represent over 60 local OA meetings to our regional board, OA Region 6. MBI was the very first Intergroup in the state of Massachusetts. After incorporating in 1988, we have been supporting (roughly) 65 MBI meetings in our local area.

- To provide unity of groups and organization of meetings registered with MBI.
