At the East Bay Food Pantry, their mission is to "engage, educate, and empower the East Bay in creating a hunger-free community." Food is available to anyone in need in the East Bay. Their "client choice" food programs are all grounded in their Access Nutrition Initiative, providing healthy food choices and nutrition education to address inequalities of access to healthy foods. They strive to provide a consistent inventory of whole grain foods, fruits and vegetables, and high-quality protein and dairy items.
"Food insecurity among Rhode Island families is a real and urgent social issue; one that the East Bay Food Pantry addresses with compassion, expertise, and innovation, and we are proud to present them with this donation," said Marissa Faraone Head Teller at People's Bristol branch.
