Just for Kids

Hey kids!  Want to be a Can Man Fan?

Click the link for a printable coloring page of our Mascot, Can Man!

Here are a few ideas about how you can help make sure that local families have plenty to eat:

  • Grow-A-Row!  What’s that? Find out by clicking our link: Grow A Row!
  • Volunteer at a local farm that grows food for the East Bay Food Pantry.  Contact us to find a farm that fits your schedule.
  • Have a Peanut Butter and Jelly Drive at your school.  One Rhode Island seventh grader collected 290 jars of peanut butter and jelly in seven days!
  • Remind your parents to donate when food drives happen in your area.
  • Raise money for the Food Pantry by having a car wash, selling lemonade or collecting pennies from friends and family (remember to check with your parents first.)  Did you know that we can buy a pound of food with every 10 cents you donate?  That means $1 buys 10 lbs. of food!  How many cents would it take to buy your weight in food?
  • Check out the Rhode Island Community Food Bank Kids Page for more ideas.
