On March 5, the Cumberland Youth Commission, a year-round program for teens interested in community service, loaded up cars with bags and boxes of food donations they collected for the Northern Rhode Island Food Pantry in Cumberland.
Teens collected 30 to 40 grocery bags’ worth of food, not including a dozen boxes of food donations from Dave’s Market, said Jamie Droste, K-12 program coordinator at OCYL. “It surprised the kids how successful it was,” she said. “We just had a real outpouring of support.”
The Northern Rhode Island Food is currently open from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on the third Saturday of each month.
