Take Action to End Hunger
According to the USDA, one out of every eight Rhode Island households lacks adequate food. Despite signs of an improving economy, the need for food assistance remains very high. Each month, 60,000 Rhode Islanders rely on food pantries
to stave off hunger. Sadly, half are children or senior adults.
We Need Your Help!
- Get all the facts by reading the Food Bank’s
2015 Status Report on Hunger in Rhode Island.
- Tell our Congressional Delegation to support Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization and to expand critical programs that feed children where they live, learn and play.
- Write to your state legislators. Ask them to:
Help working families by increasing the state’s Earned Income Tax Credit.
Strengthen the safety net by allocating additional grant funding for the Food Bank.
