  • Description: The Rhode Island Community Food Bank provides food to people in need and promotes long-term solutions to the problem of hunger. The Food Bank is an innovative leader in solving the problem of hunger. In partnership with our member agencies, as well as government and community leaders, we work to ensure that no one in Rhode Island goes hungry. We envision a day when everyone in Rhode Island has access to nutritious food through an efficient and sustainable acquisition and distribution network. Since 1982, the Rhode Island Community Food Bank has solicited, stored and distributed surplus food and grocery products to qualified member agency programs that serve Rhode Island's hungry. Millions of pounds of donated food and nonfood household products are distributed to the community through our network of more than 250 member agency food programs across Rhode Island.
