Story

Help us help our neighbors in need impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic!  The Rhode Island Community Food Bank acquires and distributes food to families through a statewide network of 159 pantries and meal sites.  Since the Food Bank purchases nutritious food in bulk, your donated dollars are leveraged to get more food than can be purchased at the grocery store, thereby getting more food out to those in the community who need it.

Donations of non-perishable food items can be brought to Cardi Corporation's Safety Department at 385 Lincoln Ave, Warwick, RI from October 18, 2021 through November 18, 2021.  Food will be picked up by RICFB and distributed to families in time for Thanksgiving.  Holiday food donations can include stuffing, cranberry sauce, boxed mashed potatoes, canned gravy or gravy packets, bread mixes, canned soup or soup mixes, and canned vegetables, or a complete list of their most-needed non-perishable food items can be found enclosed with this letter as well as linked on the Cardi Corporation and CIRI web pages.
