Monthly Update: Summer at the Pantry

Augus 2022 Newsletter

Summer is Here!

 

We hope you are having a good summer! At the beginning and end of the summer vacation, we coordinate giving food for lunches and snacks to families of school aged children. Our board member, Nancy Champagne coordinates the Vacation Nutrition Program. Many of our programs at the Pantry are led and run by volunteers. In August we celebrate our volunteers by hosting a picnic at the Pantry with free hamburgers, hot dogs, as well as side dishes, drinks & desserts. We ask our volunteers to bring a chair for the picnic and we provide the food and say thank you. Look at the details in this newsletter and feel free to join us at the Pantry on Tuesday, August 9th to celebrate all our wonderful volunteers! We thank everyone who helps the Pantry in our mission to feed the hungry people of North Kingstown.

 

Sincerely,

Kim Page

Volunteer Picnic

All volunteers are welcome to bring a chair & attend! This picnic will be Tuesday, August 9th at 5:00pm at 445 School Street. The Pantry will provide all the food and grill the burgers and hot dogs. We hope you can attend!

Produce Day

Always a success!

Very Creative

Families of local children’s art studio, Harbor Creative Arts, donated over 100 boxes of mac and cheese for box dominos at the studio’s North Kingstown Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting earlier this summer.
Rachel Armentano and her kids Daphne and Tate were the lucky ones who got to deliver it all (and knock down the domino line).
Thank you for your ‘creative’ donation! Visit their website:

Amgen

A cohort of 20 interns from Amgen Rhode Island made an off-site trip and donated food items to the North Kingstown Food Pantry. Originally planning to deliver 40 lbs. of food items, the cohort exceeded their goal in helping the local community.

One final thank you to recent @NKHS_RI graduate Jacob Silversmith. Jacob has organized hygiene drives for the pantry since he was in 7th grade. Today, he made one final donation before he heads off to college at Cornell University later this summer. Thank you for your years of support to our pantry, Jacob! #community #northkingstown #nkfoodpantry @nk_schools
