Truck Stop: A Festival of Street Eats
Friday, April 25, 5:30 - 8:30 pm
Providence Rink, Bank of America City Center, Kennedy Plaza, Downtown Providence
Join us for another lively Downcity event featuring Rhode Island's finest food trucks. The Food Bank is delighted to partner once again with Eat Drink RI to host "Truck Stop: A Festival of Street Eats," as one of the signature events of the Eat Drink RI Festival weekend.
Live music will be performed by the Superchief Trio, featuring Keith Munslow and friends, who perform a repertoire of swing, New Orleans R&B, jump blues and boogie woogie.
Last year's event raised more than $95,000 for the Food Bank, thanks to generous sponsors and all the great folks who purchased tickets. It was a night to remember!

Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive
Saturday, May 10
All Across Rhode Island
On Saturday, May 10, letter carriers across Rhode Island and the nation will be working extra hard to make sure the people in the communities they serve have enough to eat. This day marks the 22nd annual “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive, coordinated by the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC).
All you have to do is place a sturdy bag filled with non-perishable food near your mailbox by 8 am on Saturday, May 10. The letter carriers will pick it up and deliver it to the Food Bank and local food pantries, with the help of volunteers.
Most-needed items include canned soup, canned vegetables, tuna, peanut butter, pasta, rice, canned beans and healthy cereals.
Please share this information with friends, family, schools, businesses and organizations! We need everyone's help to make this drive a success. To download a Stamp Out Hunger flyer, click here.
