We are reaching out to our generous community on this with a humble request. Our college food pantry serves as a vital resource for students facing food insecurity. We aim to bolster our efforts and continue supporting our students by ensuring the pantry remains stocked and readily available. We believe that education should not be hindered by hunger. Your support will not only nourish bodies but also empower minds, allowing students to focus on their studies without the burden of food insecurity. Please consider joining us in this cause by donating to the L4L Food Pantry on this . Your generosity will create a lasting impact on the lives of our students. The link to donate can be found in our bio.


Tomorrow is , a global day of giving. We humbly ask for your generosity in donating to the L4L Food Pantry on campus. Our own President, Dr. Jack Warner and his wife, Celeste Warner, '90, have personally pledged $1,000 as a challenge to the RIC community. Find the donation link in our bio and help us remove barriers for RIC students.

We would like to finish out food insecurity awareness week with some local resources that help fight food insecurity. Hope is always near.

Food insecurity is more than just having enough. What else must be considered before we classify someone as food secure? Taste, Health, Accessibility, Affordability, and Cultural Appropriateness

College students are especially vulnerable to experience food insecurity! How many times have you heard the stereotype that college students eat ramen noodles every night? If you or another RIC student you know is struggling with food insecurity or finances, refer to Learning for Life.


If you are a RIC student in need of some food supplies for the upcoming holiday, sign up for a FREE basket 🍽 Link in bio!
