FOOD DONATIONS

We partnered with The Northern RI Food Pantry to collect over 600 lbs of food to donate. As a result of that partnership, we were thrilled to be invited to increase our impact! In August we invited the food pantry to be a beneficiary of the collaboration between The Ravenous Runners and The Franklin Farm and The Franklin Farm 5k. We are thrilled to spearhead this partnership so we can work together to address food insecurity in our community.
