Coronavirus and the Food Bank:
How Can You Help?  

Thank you to everyone who has reached out to ask how they can support the Rhode Island Community Food Bank during the Coronavirus public health crisis. We appreciate your caring and concern for our neighbors in need.

In response to the crisis, the Food Bank has made some adjustments to our operations, but we continue to deliver food through our statewide network of member agencies.

For the safety of our staff and volunteers, we have canceled volunteer shifts for the next 2 weeks. Staff members have been reassigned to sort and pack food in small groups to ensure that we can maintain food distribution.

Our top priority is to ensure that our network of pantries remains strong and able to distribute healthy, nutritious food to those who need it most.  The ability of our member agencies to continue to serve guests will change as this crisis develops, so we are regularly updating the Agency List on the Find Food page of our website.

The best way you can help support this critical work right now is to make a financial donation to the Food Bank. We anticipate an increase in need as many people find themselves out of work and the economy worsens. Every donation will ensure that we can maintain our operations well into the future while continuing to acquire and distribute healthy food to some of the most vulnerable populations, including children and seniors.

Again, thank you for your continued dedication and commitment to our work to ensure that no one goes hungry during this crisis. It’s especially heartening to be reminded that we are all in this together.
