We are strongest when we work together to help those in need. We are a better community when we work for the common good. Here are a few of the many ways you can be part of the solution to ending hunger and poverty in our community.
Invest In Us
Financial gifts allow us the flexibility to purchase food and other basic needs.
Financial gifts give us the best bang for our buck as we can purchase food from the RI Community Food Bank and other wholesalers. Financial gifts ensure we can purchase fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products, and proteins not otherwise available through donations. Every gift has an impact, no matter how big or small.
