posted by NKFP Website

The North Kingstown Food Pantry recently received a $6000 grant from the Centreville Bank Charitable foundation. The grant is to be used to help fund the Vacation Nutrition Program (VNP).

The NKFP is a 501 (c)(3) Rhode Island non-profit corporation with a vision to eliminate hunger in the North Kingstown area. Quality food and services are provided to individuals and families in the area. The North Kingstown Food Pantry is considered an emergency food pantry. The food supplied is a supplement to other sources of assistance. It is meant to help with short-term need and also insures an adequate, healthy diet for area residents.

Besides running an emergency food pantry, several other programs are available to their clients. These include the Senior Nutrition Program, Recipe of the Month, The Talk Turkey Thanksgiving program and the Christmas program.

The Vacation Nutrition Program is designed to fill the gap during the school and summer vacations when students are not receiving school breakfast and lunches. Currently over 150 children are enrolled to receive 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches. Families that are clients of the Food Pantry are eligible.

Jonathan Roderick, Vice-President of Retail Banking and Branch Administration for Centreville Bank, made the presentation. He said the bank’s Charitable Foundation looks for programs such as the NKFP that focuses on educational and human services. Roderick said this is one way Centreville Bank “gives back” to the community they serve.
