Network’s work has become more important than ever during this crisis, as a large portion of those we serve are losing jobs, having hours cut back, putting off job searches and/or fearing they will be unable to cover basic expenses.

 

We continue to respond to these needs with food and utility assistance through a modified distribution model, allowing clients to pick up packaged food orders at our rear loading dock and receive other assistance over the phone. Several neighboring food pantries have closed their doors prompting us to fill the gap by offering their clients assistance with food. Additionally, beginning next week, Network will be partnering with RISD to provide at least 1,000 “weekend food boxes” each Friday to students and their families through a planned distribution on the district’s current school bus routes. We plan to continue this support to families as long as RISD is serving meals on their bus routes.

 

In order to provide these extra resources, Network must incur additional expenses. Increased staffing, supplies and other supports are needed over the next few months for us to manage this effort effectively for our neighbors in need. We cannot meet this demand without you.

Below you will see several opportunities for you and your family to make a difference. Please consider one of the following:

 

·   Donate cash (click on “Make a Donation” below).

·   Donate food – On your own or through a neighborhood food drive.

·   Contribute a “craft kit” to the RISD Food Boxes – Have your children come up with an idea for a “do at home” craft and make a kit to be placed in RISD weekend food boxes.

·   Write “Notes of Encouragement” to include in our food bags and boxes

 

Food donations, craft kits and notes of encouragements can be dropped off at our loading dock during our normal business hours

(Monday-Thursday 9am to 5:30pm and Friday 9am to Noon).

 

We extend our heartfelt thanks to all of you for standing by Network during challenges like these, and hope that you and your family remain safe and healthy amidst the COVID-19 crisis.
