Take a virtual tour of the RI Community Food Bank

Take a Virtual Tour of the Food Bank 

At the Food Bank, we love to have visitors in our facility so they can learn more about our operations. Often they are amazed by the scale and efficiency of our efforts. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, we have been unable to welcome guests as we adhere to strict social distancing guidelines. But, until we can have visitors again, we're pleased to offer a virtual tour so you can see the critical work that your support makes possible.  

Serving Meals For Kids 

When COVID-19 closed schools, 52,000 Rhode Island children stopped receiving free or reduced-price school lunches. The Food Bank responded by ramping up production of Meals4Kids boxes, which contain five shelf-stable, kid-friendly breakfasts, lunches and snacks. They also contain information on community resources available for children and families. From March through July, the Food Bank distributed more than 23,000 boxes.

Help Farms Grow Food

The Rhode Island Community Food Bank receives fresh produce grown by a network of community farms around the state. These fruits and vegetables feed hungry Rhode Islanders while utilizing valuable land. Each farm relies on volunteers to get the work done so there are always opportunities for you to help out. To learn more, visit our website and find a community farm near you. Then get to picking fresh produce for our neighbors in need.
