Community Farms

Community farms grow fresh produce for hungry Rhode Islanders while preserving valuable land. Each farm is managed by a volunteer coordinator who works with the Food Bank.

To get a sense of how community farms contribute to the Food Bank, read Bob Kerr's article in the Providence Journal.
