Three more senior citizens registered to use the pantry yesterday. They are sweet ladies who live on small fixed incomes because they took a hard hit during the tough economic times that began a few years before they reached retirement age. It’s a common story and it always reminds us of the importance of providing the nutritionally dense foods that help keep them healthy. So many people have made such a difference in the lives of our pantry guests by donating produce from their gardens. I wish they could see the smiles that are created through their generosity.
Food donations can be dropped off here at the pantry Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM, and Saturday morning until noon. If the pantry location and hours aren’t convenient for you, many wonderful organizations and businesses keep our food collection containers on site.

With Much Appreciation,
Newport Food Pantry
