The Rhode Island Community Food Bank has kicked off its annual Holiday Food Drive to help ensure that no one goes hungry this holiday season. Rhode Islanders are invited to participate by hosting a food drive or donating funds to support the organization.

“Every year, we ask the community to step up to support people in need of food assistance,” said Food Bank CEO Andrew Schiff. And we are always amazed by the generous response we receive from our neighbors and friends.

This year, the Food Bank is launching a new online fundraising tool to promote group fundraising for the organization. Explains Schiff, “Anyone can create their own fundraising page to recognize a birthday or a special event and encourage their friends and family to give. All of the donations will come directly to the Food Bank to support our work. For more information and to try it for yourself visit”

The Rhode Island Community Food Bank serves 57,000 people each month through its statewide network of 155 member agencies. One-third of the clients served are children and one-fifth are seniors.

Narragansett Council Boy Scouts Collect 215000 Pounds of Food for RI Food Bank

The Narragansett Council Boy Scouts of America collected 215,000 pounds of food for the Rhode Island Food Bank during their 30th annual “Scouting for Food Good Turn” drive.

The drive ran from October 28 through November 4 across Rhode Island, Southeastern Massachusetts and Connecticut.

“This year’s Scouting for Food drive will help feed thousands of people. The Scouts who participated worked very hard to help their communities,” said Joe DeStefano, Volunteer Coordinator for the food drive since it began in 1987. 

The Food Drive

Over 200 Scouting Packs and Troops from across Southern New England participated in the drive by collecting canned goods from families and individuals.  

Donation pick-ups took place Saturday, November 4 and were delivered to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank and other local food pantries.

“The hard work and dedication that the Narragansett Council Scouts have shown this year is tremendous. This food drive is essential to serving the 1 in 8 Rhode Islanders in need of food assistance, especially as we head into colder weather,” said Andrew Schiff, Chief Executive Officer of the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. 

Do you have to pay the bank in Rhode Island when a property is foreclosed and sold by the bank at lower price?

Like many other people, it's been hard to make ends meet and stay on top of my mortgage. I want to know if Rhode Island law allows the bank to come after me for whatever the difference is from what they sell it for.
