About Us


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. However, high-demand items that we are unable to purchase from the food bank or obtain through food drives must be purchased at retail prices. Therefore, cash donations, monthly pledge donations, and directed food drives are our highest needs.

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.
