Moses Brown students devise program to ease hunger

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A group of budding social entrepreneurs has created a plan to tackle the issue of food insecurity in Rhode Island.

The students, juniors and seniors at Moses Brown, an independent co-ed private school, developed the proposal as part of their Economics of Social Innovation class, taught by Gara Field and Dan Ohl. The class, which began last year, asks students to design an innovative solution to a pressing social problem.

The students chose to pursue the problems of food waste and hunger in Rhode Island because the statistics were so compelling: 132,000 Rhode Islanders — one resident out of eight — experience food insecurity, which means they don't have regular access to the variety and quality of food deemed healthy. 

Wearing T-shirts that said, "Food for Friends," several students presented their project before a crowd that included Rhode Island's first gentleman, Andy Moffit, state General Treasurer Seth Magaziner,  state Education Commissioner Ken Wagner and U.S. Rep. David Cicilline at a recent launch event.

Citizens Bank addressing 'residual access issues' with online, mobile banking

PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Some of the woes that plagued Citizens Bank and the Rhode Island Division of Motor Vehicles Friday morning have been resolved.

It's not clear if the outages were related.

For Citizens Bank, customers had been unable to access their accounts and transactions posting to accounts were affected. By 11:30 a.m., transactions were posting to accounts again, the bank said.

"We are working through some residual access issues that currently are impacting mobile and online banking but expect access to those systems to be restored shortly," bank spokesman Rory Sheehan said in an email Friday morning. "We apologize to our customers for any inconvenience caused by this delay.”

By 2 p.m., however, some customers still reported being unable to access their accounts.

Citizens Bank attributed the problem to a "processing delay."

Bank customers also faced delays in transactions posting their accounts due to a “vendor processing issue” in March.

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.
