The Latest Facts & Figures on Hunger in Our Community

In every community in Rhode Island, there are individuals and families impacted by hunger. Far too many people still require assistance putting food on the table. And food insecurity greatly affects some of our most vulnerable citizens. The health of children and seniors suffers when they have limited access to adequate nutritious food.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), 12 percent of Rhode Islanders, 51,000 households, are food insecure, meaning they are often unsure where their next meal will come from due to lack of resources. The most severe conditions associated with hunger are reported by 4.7 percent of our state’s residents, 20,000 households.

Make A Difference: The Time Is Now!

If you happened to notice the calendar last week, you know that Autumn has arrived. And if you’ve been in a big-box store any time since Labor Day, you’ve heard holiday music and seen the holiday lights and lawn inflatables being merchandised. While it is probably too soon for most of us to get into the holiday mood, it is time to start thinking about what "giving" should really mean this holiday season, and if our charity is to have timely impact, contributing starts now.
