Story

Each year the RISD Museum staff embraces the needs of our community through contributions to the The Rhode Island Community Food Bank.

The Food Bank distributes food to people in need through a statewide network of 143 member agencies including food pantries, meal sites, shelter, youth programs and senior centers.

Currently, the Food Bank is serving 80,000 Rhode Islanders each month through our network of member agencies.

Please join us in this effort, as we honor our colleague Tammie Worthington-Witczak who leaves us to join the Food Bank leadership team, and our great friend Phil Lessard, now retired, who spearheaded our efforts in the past.

The Food Bank solicits food donations from the public and from the food industry, including supermarkets, food manufacturers and growers. To keep up with the high demand for food assistance, the Food Bank also purchases food at a low cost from wholesalers.

Last year, the Food Bank distributed 16.2 million pounds of food, including 3.7 million pounds of fresh produce and 2.8 million pounds of culturally relevant foods.
