” I was hungry and you gave me something to eat.” Matthew 25:35
The North Smithfield Food Pantry, housed in the Slatersville Congregational Church’s basement, helps to feed about sixty families per month. It is open to North Smithfield residents and members of our congregation. Hours of operation are the last two Tuesday evenings of each month from 5 to 7 and the last two Saturday mornings of each month from 10 to 11.
Our Food Rescue Program helps to feed hundreds each week. This program began when grocery chains, large and small retailers, and area farmers started donating more of their excess produce, meats, cereals, breads, and baked goods than our Food Pantry could use. We started sharing the extras with other food pantries and soup kitchens in the area.
