The mission of the Edgewood Pawtuxet Ecumenical Food Closet is to feed our neighbors who are in need and lead the community to end hunger.
A community, state and world where no one goes hungry and everyone has access to nutritious food.
We believe that access to nutritious food is a basic human right. We are committed to responding to the needs of our community through food distribution and support services
Friendly & Welcoming!
The Edgewood Pawtuxet Ecumenical Food Closet is here to help! We know that, sadly, many people in our community struggle to put food on the table.
In addition to the unemployed and homeless, there is a large number of working families and elderly residents whose monthly incomes do not cover their expenses. These individuals and families earn a minimum wage or are retired on fixed minimum incomes.
Particularly hard hit are low income families and single parents with young children. According to our local census, one in six residents falls below the poverty level. But, we are here to help!
Not Just Food!
Though our mission is to ensure that no one goes hungry, we respond to many other needs as well. We partner with many community programs and services to help our clients. Here are just a few of the things we do and the resources that are available.
