About UsThe Northern RI Food Pantry is a 501(c)(3) Rhode Island nonprofit organization. We provide high-quality food and services to individuals and families in the Northern Rhode Island area. We work to sustain our neighbors in need so that they may become as self-sufficient as possible and improve their quality of life. We are members of the RI Community Food Bank and are an all-volunteer, community-supported organization offering a safe, respectful, welcoming, and compassionate environment to those we serve.
Our pantry is considered an Emergency Food Pantry. That means it is not possible for us to provide all the food needed by those we serve, nor is that our intent. The food we provide is to supplement other sources of food, to help with short-term need and help insure an adequate, healthy diet for our visitors.
