About the Food Bank

About the Food BankSince 1982, the Rhode Island Community Food Bank has been distributing millions of pounds of food to those in need of assistance through our network of member agencies across the state.

To meet the demand, the Food Bank solicits food donations from the public and from the food industry, including supermarkets, food manufacturers and growers. The Food Bank also purchases food at low cost from wholesalers.

Equipped with a 77,000-square-foot facility, a fleet of trucks and a professional staff, the Food Bank safely and efficiently moves nearly 200,000 pounds of food out its doors each week.
