Supporting Our Food System
The Rhode Island Food Center at URI is a resource center where members of the Rhode Island food system can seek answers, find partners, create innovations, and educate consumers. The Center is a program of URI’s College of the Environment and Life Sciences (CELS) in partnership the URI College of Business and the URI Business Engagement Center.
The Food Center will serve as a place where farmers, growers, producers, distributors, servers, retailers, supporters, and other pioneers can easily access URI’s agricultural resources, wider food expertise, researchers, students, and business support programs. The Center will provide URI students with unique opportunities to connect with industry and get practical experience in the food sector.
