Partners make the difference
Nearly one-third of the food acquired by the Rhode Island Community Food Bank is purchased. We rely on the generous donations of individuals and corporate partners to help us deliver 11.6 million pounds of food to neighbors in need each year. Take a look at some of the community partners and friends who make our work possible.
