Bread Of Life Food Pantry


The Bread of Life Food Pantry would like to thank all East Providence residents and all East Providence mail carriers who were involved in this year’s National Association of Letter Carriers Food Drive. On Saturday, May 13th, East Providence mail carriers delivered approximately 3,500 pounds of food that was donated by East Providence residents to the Pantry. The generosity of those who donated the food and the extra time and effort given by the mail carriers in completing this important project are greatly appreciated!

As the food items were delivered throughout the day, 45 volunteers from the East Providence churches that operate the Pantry and from the community at large worked to unload, inspect, sort, and store the donations and enjoyed a wonderful time of community service and fellowship.

The Bread of Life Food Pantry is a collaborative ecumenical effort of several East Providence churches. The Pantry is located at Newman Congregational Church, 100 Newman Avenue, and is open twice each month, on the second and fourth Tuesdays from 5 to 7 p.m. The Pantry welcomes all those in need of food assistance.
