Rhode Island is not exempt from hunger. There many food insecure families in our state. Some are pictured here. Fortunately there are safety nets like the farmers and Master Gardeners who grow produce for Jonnycake Center's Farmer's Market and Food Pantry. The RI Food Bank distributes tons of food to many locations throughout the state, including to many kids at the East Providence Boys and Girls Club. Thankfully teens and seniors pitch in to help while corporations offer financial support. Folks from Southern RI Volunteers deliver "Meals On Wheels" to homebound seniors. Families from The Good Shepard Lutheran Church peel potatoes that turn into home fries that feed the homeless.
