Food Bank receives generous donation

The Rhode Island Community Food Bank has just received a generous donation thanks to The Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin Robbins Community Foundation.

The $20,000 grant will allow the food bank to provide backpacks filled with food to students struggling with hunger at Pell Elementary School in Newport.

A total of 2,500 backpacks will be distributed, each filled with nutritious, easy-to-make foods that will get them through weekends and vacations when resources are scarce.

The well-being of these students is of the utmost importance for those at the Food Bank and The Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin Robbins Community Foundation.
