During the month of April, we are protein items. There is always a need for more protein at the food pantry, so bring in peanut butter, canned tuna and/or chicken, beans, etc. And you get a bonus this month – there are 5 Sundays!
Remember to bring in your non-perishable food donations for PICA. PICA (formerly the Providence In-town Churches Association) has been serving the needs of low-income and homeless people since 1974. We currently provide services to over over 9,000 people at our two locations through our Downtown Food Pantry, serving over 6200 (unduplicated) people each month. We are the largest provider of food security in the state through our two food pantries, feeding 50% of all people accessing food pantries in Providence and the only agency downtown offering intensive, holistic case management on a walk-in basis to the homeless population. PICA is a non-profit agency whose mission is to offer stability, justice, and hope to those in need through advocacy and direct service.
Donations may be placed in the bins at the top of the stairs when entering the auditorium. They are dedicated on the fourth Sunday of each month.
