Food Programs

Food insecurity among Rhode Island families is a real and urgent social issue; one that the East Bay Food Pantry (EBFP) addresses with compassion, expertise, and innovation. All our food programs are designed around our award-winning Access Nutrition initiative. Clients from the East Bay can utilize one or more of our client-choice food programs, making their own selections from the available food based upon household size and nutritional guidelines. All food programs are available free of charge to those in need of food assistance.


“You have a lot of healthy foods, and that makes all the difference! Your recipes are helpful too. We are so grateful for the East Bay Food Pantry and Thrift Store. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to make it. I tell everybody to go to the East Bay Food Pantry if they need help. You make me feel like family!.”
