An update provided by Newport Food Pantry from Katherine Myers:
I’m happy to say that we were able to provide a lot of good food for hungry families this past week. Seasonal unemployment is always a concern in Newport this time of year so we’re grateful for everyone who makes emergency food distribution possible.
As always, canned meats/proteins and peanut butter fly off the shelves. We are still trying to offer an assortment of canned fruits, canned or boxed soups, heat and serve items, and condiments. Also, we would like to round out the dried/canned legume shelf. Red and black beans are appreciated by clients but currently in short supply. Many wonderful businesses host our food collection containers. The list is on our website. Just click here.
With deep gratitude to you and the community of Newport for their generosity,
Newport Food Pantry
