News from the RI Community Food Bank

Need for Food Assistance
May Increase in February
Due to the government shutdown, the 157,000 Rhode Islanders receiving federal food assistance, or SNAP, received their support for February on January 20, nearly two weeks early. However, they will not receive the next round of benefits until March 1. As a result, many families may fall short of funds and seek food assistance from our network of pantries and meal sites. Please help us make sure that we are prepared to meet this need.
