The 2018 Status Report on Hunger in Rhode Island shows that hunger is more prevalent than it was ten years ago. Despite an improving economy, many low-wage workers struggle to feed their families. The rising cost of food is outpacing wage growth and limiting the buying power of SNAP benefits.
Because so many families are unable to afford adequate food, the demand for food assistance remains high. The Food Bank and its network of member agencies continue to serve 53,000 people each month.
