Turino Joins RI Community Food Bank’s Summer Food Drive
June 24, 2013
Turino Group announced today that they will be participating in a Summer Food Drive to support the Rhode Island Community Food Bank.
The summertime presents the Rhode Island Community Food Bank with one of their biggest challenges, as the summer is a time of decreasing donations and increasing need. When school is out, the breakfast and lunch programs that feed thousands of children during the academic year are not available. Turino’s participation in this year’s event will have a major impact in helping those who turn to the services of the Rhode Island Community Food Bank and their network of member agencies. The most needed foods are:
• Canned fruits & Vegetables
• Canned Soups & Stews
• Canned/Dried Beans
• Whole Wheat Pasta
• Breakfast Cereals
• Peanut Butter
• Brown Rice
“According to the Food Bank, in 2013 60,000 Rhode Islanders will seek food assistance through a network of emergency food programs”, stated David Giardino, President of Turino Group. “We are honored to help out and join the cause of ending hunger in Rhode Island."
The Summer Food Drive will run through the summer until August 30th. Turino will make drop offs at the Food Bank throughout the summer as their collection boxes fills up. If you would like to join the cause, please pass your donations along to a Turino team member, or visit the Rhode Island Community Food Bank website to make a monetary donation: http://rifoodbank.org/.
