Raimondo Attends RI Community Food Bank's Holiday Meal Drive and Open House
General Treasurer Gina M. Raimondo and her family recently paid a visit to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank’s Holiday Meal Drive and Open House where they dropped off their canned-food donations and enjoyed the various activities and vocal performances at the event.
“I am so appreciative of the services the Rhode Island Community Food Bank provides to our state,” said Raimondo. “The Holiday Meal Drive and Open House was a great way for families like mine to support the local food bank and celebrate the holidays with our fellow Rhode Islanders.”
The Rhode Island Community Food Bank’s mission is to distribute food and groceries to qualified programs that serve the hungry, while promoting long-term solutions to help solve the problem of hunger in Rhode Island.
The Food Bank’s Holiday Meal Drive accepts donations of non-perishable food items throughout the holiday season. This year, the Food Bank is hoping to reach its goal of collecting 350,000 additional pounds of food by December 31st.
