2013 Summer Food Drive
June 30 - August 31
Rhode Island Community Food Bank
200 Niantic Avenue, Providence, RI
We need your help to raise 150,000 pounds of food by August 31 to keep up with the continuing high need for food assistance. Stop by the Food Bank any weekday (excluding holidays) between 8 am and 5 pm to drop off donations of food or pick up food drive supplies. You can also give online by clicking here -- every dollar you give adds three pounds of healthy food to our goal.
If you'd like to conduct a food drive in your neighborhood, business or organization this summer, we can provide the posters, collections bins and information packets, including our special toolkit for young people: "One Kid Can! Helping the Hungry: A Toolkit for Kids and Teens."
Please help us put food on the table for thousands of families this summer. For information on the Summer Food Drive, click here.
