Cyndi Elder, director of communications at the Rhode Island Community Food Bank , says her organization feeds about 68,000 people every month through its statewide network of food pantries and meal sites. That’s an all time high since the organization was founded in 1982. Right now, the volunteer slots for sorting food are completely filled, Elder says, but the RICFB’s Holiday Meal Drive is currently under way until the end of December, and they’re still about 100,000 pounds short of their goal of collecting 350,000 by year’s end. Thankfully, they’ve made it incredibly easy to contribute.
HOW YOU CAN HELP: Bring non-perishable food donations to RICFB (200 Niantic Avenue, Providence) Monday through Friday between 8 am and 5 pm. For those who want to make a greater impact, Elder suggests hosting a food or fund drive in your own community through a school, church, or business.

It's important for a couple of reasons; one, it brings hundreds of thousands of pounds of food and we really need that to be serving the number of people we are serving," said Cindy Elder, program director of the Rhode Island Community Food Bank.
According to Elder, in the rare case that the food is not picked up, the Food Bank has an arrangement with Walgreens stores across the state and members of the community can drop off their bags of food to any Walgreens a week after the drive, as well as weekly between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. They can also drop the food off directly at the Food Bank.
"We encourage people to put a little extra food in the bag this year because right now we are serving 68,000 people a month," said Elder. "Those are the highest numbers we have ever seen."
Elder explained this is a correlation with the rise of need with the economy and lack of jobs.
"If you look at the work force that makes it happen, it is young children," said Elder.
