Food Pantries

The EBCAP food pantries are located in three separate locations for the convenience of our clients (East Providence, Newport and Tiverton), and they are assisted by local community volunteers, including AmeriCorps members. Our pantries are stocked with food that is both donated and purchased from the Rhode Island Community Food Bank, and with donations from generous community contributors such as Singing Out Against Hunger (an all-volunteer organization in Tiverton, RI that since 2003 has held an annual three-day musical event to raise funds for our food pantries), school food drives, libraries and other area supporters. A variety of food items are offered to clients based on availability. Often fresh produce and specialty items are available for healthier food choices such as low/no salt foods. Eggs, cheese and other protein products are also offered. All donations to the pantry are welcome.
