The Bread of Life Food Pantry


The Bread of Life Food Pantry has been designated as the beneficiary of a Stop & Shop community service program. During the month of December, the Pantry will receive $1 for every Bloomin’ 4Good Bouquet sold at the Stop & Shop located at 1925 Pawtucket Avenue in East Providence. Please consider purchasing these flower bouquets that will benefit the Pantry!

The Bread of Life Food Pantry is located at Newman Congregational Church, 100 Newman Avenue, Rumford and is open twice each month, on the second and fourth Tuesdays from 5 to 7 p.m. (PLEASE NOTE that in December, the Pantry will be open on December 7th which is the 1st Tuesday and December 14th which is the 2nd Tuesday). The Pantry welcomes all those in need of food assistance. The Pantry is a collaborative ecumenical effort of six East Providence churches: Bethany Church of the Nazarene, Church of the Epiphany, Evangelical Covenant Church of Riverside, Haven United Methodist Church, Newman Congregational Church, UCC and St. Margaret Church.

The Pantry is currently operating as a drive-through program in the parking lot of Newman Church to assure the safety of volunteers and clients during the COVID pandemic. Clients remain in their cars as Pantry volunteers record their visits and provide them with their groceries.
