FSRI’s Be Safe Plus program delivers food and other personal care items to seniors, adults with disabilities and people diagnosed or quarantining in Rhode Island.
This year, as much of Rhode Island ground to a halt, local wholesale distributor Roch’s Fresh Foods has sprung into action as a key cog in Rhode Island’s COVID response. Partnering with the state for an initial fresh food delivery service and with Family Service’s Be Safe Plus program, Roch’s has leveraged their expertise to keep vulnerable Rhode Islanders fed and safe. For Roch’s, this new initiative has gone far beyond an ordinary expansion of business. Instead, it’s been an opportunity for a business that has thrived in Rhode Island for almost a century to lift up their own community.
