RI Community Food Bank seeks volunteers

Make a Difference with your Extra Day 

It's Leap Year which means we all get an extra day! Use yours to help out at the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. Prepare food donations for distribution to our neighbors in need.  You'll sort and pack food boxes and repack fresh produce with other caring volunteers.

Advanced registration is required. Children aged 7 and up are welcome when accompanied by an adult.

Leap Year Community Volunteer Day 
Saturday, February 29 from 9 am to 12 pm
Rhode Island Community Food Bank
200 Niantic Ave, Providence

Bill selects fresh produce during his visit to the food pantry at the First Unitarian Church in Providence. 

Living On the Bare Minimum 

“We’re down to the bare minimum. There are times we’ve had to pay rent late, pay the car payment late, just to purchase groceries. If you name the bill, we’ve had to put it off.”

Bill is 50 and unable to work because of a tumor in his pituitary gland and some other health issues. His wife still works, but she doesn’t earn enough to pay all of their bills. Yet, they don’t qualify for federal assistance programs like SNAP. They rely on the network of pantries in Providence and Pawtucket to put food on their table.
