Because of the Pandemic, most of our normal sources and locations for food collections have temporarily closed. We are reaching out to Rhode Island businesses and organizations, still in operation, who are willing to be a food collection drop-off point for food donations. We will deliver a food collection box to your location and arrange for pickups at your convenience. Your business location will be listed on our website and Facebook page as a collection drop-off point, along with your hours of operation. If you are interested in helping or have any questions please email Dick Telesmanick at: NorthernRIFoodPantry@gmail.com

The Food Pantry relies on donations and grants in order to continue operating. As an agency of the RI Community Food Bank, we are able to purchase the food that we distribute to our monthly clients at a deep-discounted rate.

Please consider donating to this vital community organization! Donations may be made by cash or check to: The Northern RI Food Pantry PO Box 7833 Cumberland, RI 02864 If you would like an acknowledgment of your donation for tax purposes, please include a request for such with your donation. You can also donate using your credit card, securely via the helpful folks at PayPal®, by clicking the "Donate" button, below.

The Northern RI Food Pantry is 501(c)(3), tax-exempt organization. All donations to NRIFP are tax-deductible. A copy of our IRS certificate is available upon request using the form on the Contact Us page.
