2015 Summer Food Drive
Grand total: 156,580 lbs
This year, we met our goal and then some, collecting 156,580 pounds of food for thousands of families this summer. We appreciate everyone's participating in making our Summer Food Drive a success.
Summer is an especially hard time for families with children. In Rhode Island, 50,500 children are eligible to receive free or reduced-price school breakfasts and lunches. For many of these children, there is no meal program to replace those they would have received at school.
The Summer Food Drive helps struggling families during the summer months and enables the Food Bank to continue providing food to emergency food programs across the state. We are calling on the community to help us meet the high demand by collecting 150,000 pounds of food by the end of August.
