Update from Katherine Myers, Newport Food Pantry
Very often, a humble apology accompanies a new application for emergency food assistance, as though the economic climate that makes a visit to the pantry necessary is the sole fault of the individual who is unable to provide enough food for himself or his family. That is one of the reasons we strive to provide as many food/brand choices as possible. Enjoying a wide selection in a familiar “supermarket” type setting helps alleviate some of that discomfort. That’s why we are so grateful for the continued support from the Newport community. I only wish each of you could witness the wonderful effect your donations have on the lives of the people we see each day. Thank you all for making the pantry possible.
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. For a complete list, please click here. Every donation, large or small, helps us feed our hungry friends and neighbors.
