Dig In - You're needed

Rhode Islanders are hungry! 1 in 8 are food insecure -- one of the highest rates in the region. Children and elderly are the hardest hit with 25% of children below the poverty line and our elderly choosing medicine -- or food. But that’s not who we are as a people -- We look after our neighbors. We can make sure people have enough to eat. We may be little, but we’re mighty. Proceeds go to the RI Community Food Bank, Southside Community Land Trust, RI Feeds RI, We Share Hope, Amos House, Why Hunger and other front-line hunger relief efforts. Your neighbors need you.
