For the 25th year, letter carriers across the state will pick up non-perishable food items from customers along their delivery route. Do your part to help make sure this year’s food drive is a huge success.
Food and fund donations decrease during the summer months, yet the need for food assistance remains high, particularly for children who no longer receive the free and reduced-price lunches provided for them during the school year.
The Food Bank’s Summer Food Drive encourages generous Rhode Islanders to support their neighbors in need with donations of food and funds. Keep an eye on this space for the the kick-off announcement.

The idea is simple. Enjoy local pottery and food at this casual family-friendly event. Choose a handmade artisanal bowl. Taste samples of soup, bread and dessert from more than 35 local restaurants. Keep your bowl as a reminder that your support helps fill all the empty bowls in our community.
