The PAT program engages parents during the critical time of their child’s early formative years (ages 0-4), as well as offers information to detect developmental delays and health issues. Parent peer educators visit families with young children to provide resources and support, and lead monthly playgroups where parents can connect with their peers.

The program is available in both English and Spanish and is a national, evidence-based model funded through the Rhode Island Department of Health. More information on the model can be found at www.parentsasteachers.org.

Provider Profiles: Mission to improve the quality of life for all Rhode Islanders by advancing solutions to the problem of hunger.

Our Vision
We envision a state where no one goes hungry.

The Rhode Island Community Food Bank distributes food to people in need through a statewide network of 160 member agencies. These agencies include food pantries, meal sites, shelters, youth programs and senior centers. Each month, 59,000 struggling Rhode Islanders receive food assistance at these agencies. One in three served is a child under the age of 18, and one in five is over the age of 60.

The Food Bank solicits food donations from the public and from the food industry, including supermarkets, food manufacturers and growers. To keep up with the high demand for food assistance, the Food Bank also purchases food at a low cost from wholesalers. Last year, the Food Bank distributed 9.2 million pounds of food.
