October 2021 Newsletter
Happy Fall! The Pantry is starting our collection of food for our Thanksgiving baskets. We are collecting from businesses, schools, the Boy Scout food drive, the Wickford Turkey Trot, and any individual who gives to the Pantry. To see the list of needs, look at our website, http://www.nkfoodpantry.org/lets-talk-turkey For individual items we accept cans and boxes, but for fresh produce, we ask for monetary donations so we can purchase the food wholesale and fresh for the November distribution. We thank everyone who makes this program a success every year! By the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, the Pantry will give away over 400 turkeys, produce, all the fixings for a Thanksgiving meal and a week’s worth of groceries. We thank all who help to feed the hungry people of North Kingstown!
A big shout out to Seamus, Aiden, Will and the celebrated NKHS Boys Wrestling team for their recent peanut butter food drive donation. Thanks, guys – what a great season! @nk_wrestling @north_athletics North Kingstown Wrestling
