Step Up for Hunger Challenge Donation Page





Nutritious food is essential to good health. That’s why Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI) has been a dedicated supporter of the Rhode Island Community Food Bank through initiatives like Gobble Games, Summer Snackdown, Blue across Rhode Island, and more.

In light of COVID-19, now more than ever, the Rhode Island Community Food Bank is relying on organizations like Blue Cross to ensure that their network of food pantries can continue to serve the most vulnerable Rhode Islanders. Since the crisis began, the Food Bank has increased food distribution by 42% to meet the increased demand in the community.

This year, BCBSRI will continue to support the Food Bank with the Step Up for Hunger Challenge, a new initiative that will link the steps you track through Virgin Pulse to matching donations from BCBSRI to the Food Bank.

And, just as we did for Gobble Games and Summer Snackdown, we’re also encouraging associates to go even further. Please consider maximizing the power of your steps by providing an additional donation in any amount to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. With bulk purchasing power, the Food Bank can continue to make the most of every dollar donated and reach people whose resources are stretched even more thinly due to the pandemic.

Your gift will help provide healthy food items to our neighbors in need. Thank you as always for your support of the Rhode Island Community Food Bank.
