Good Neighbors Meal Site to Open June 1


Partial reopening to include lunch-only service followed by a full reopening later this summer.

The meal site at Good Neighbors in Riverside will reopen on Wednesday, June 1, resuming services that were temporarily shut down due to the pandemic. The site will be open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. (except holidays), offering a warm and inviting place to spend some time. A delicious home-cooked lunch, prepared by volunteers, will be served at 11:30 a.m. each day. Lunch is free of charge, and all are welcome.

Plans to resume breakfast service are underway and will be announced later in the summer.

The Good Neighbors Food Pantry continues to operate every Wednesday from 9 a.m. to noon and is open to all East Providence residents. Patrons can access the pantry twice per month, and will receive a bag of non-perishable groceries, frozen meats, and a variety of fresh produce at each visit, all free of charge. Families with school-aged children can additionally participate in the summer Food4Kids program.

Good Neighbors is located in the basement of St. Brendan’s Parish Hall. Please use the Dorr Avenue entrance. Ample parking is available across from 69 Dorr Ave., at the back of the old school. Accessible options for the Food Pantry are available by appointment. For more information, please call Good Neighbors at 401-433-0045 or visit www.goodneighborsri.org
