September 2020 Newsletter
The Pantry is open and serving clients. We are thankful for the people who continue to volunteer for us and to aid our clients. We are pre-bagging food and bringing bags out to client’s cars. We have not resumed allowing clients into our small Pantry to pick out the food items they want. However our Operations Manager Stephen Souls, built a form to allow clients to exclude items they can not eat, or do not want. As fall approaches, we are experiencing more clients calling the Pantry for appointments. Please pass on to families that we serve all North Kingstown families who are in need.
We do not ask for proof of income, merely that you live in North Kingstown. Our mission is to feed the hungry people of North Kingstown, and we do not turn people away. Thank you for supporting our mission.
Thank you, Robin Monica, for donating 200 reusable cloth bags, courtesy of the North Kingstown Prevention Coalition!
Pantry Board Member, Nancy Champagne, reports that the Vacation Nutrition Program went very well in August. A total of 71 families took part with 152 children. In addition to the food given, a vegetable cart was set up outside as well as some coloring books and a box of binders and folders that the families could take.
