Poor Rhode Island families are missing more than 11 million meals a year, according to a new report by the Rhode Island Community Food Bank.

In an interview, Food Bank CEO Andrew Schiff said people with full-time jobs are not earning enough money to provide for themselves and their families.

“This has been the change that we have seen over the last few years as the economy has improved – more and more of the people helped by the Food Bank are actually working families,” he said, adding that the health of low-income Rhode Islanders is suffering due to inadequate nutrition.

Schiff said the Trump administration is considering using an executive order to make cuts to the benefit level and eligibility for the federal nutrition program known as SNAP.

“Right now, we have 148,000 people on SNAP,” he said, adding that one administration proposal would cut 11,000 people off the program, including 5,000 children.
