Can’t make it to the MLK Community Center’s on-site food pantry? Our mobile food pantry visits neighborhoods across Newport County each month on a rotating schedule. Look for “MFP” on our monthly calendar. You do not need to reside in the neighborhood to get food from the Mobile Food Pantry. Our mobile pantry provides the same items found in the on-site pantry: non-perishable food, fresh produce, frozen meat, bread, household and personal care items.
This is a monthly service for our home bound neighbors and people who are otherwise unable to come to the MLK’s on-site food pantry. If you can’t make it to the pantry, the pantry will come to you.
The folks we serve in Food 2 Friends shop each month through a mail-in order form, and a volunteer shops for them and delivers their groceries to their doorstep.
Monday – Friday: 7:30 – 9:00 a.m.
The MLK is pleased to serve a nutritious hot Breakfast to anyone in the Newport County community at our Breakfast Program. Take it to-go, or enjoy it inside.
Tuesday & Thursday: 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Every Tuesday and Thursday, the MLK is happy to provide delicious soups. Every Friday (except for MLK Friends’ Lunch Friday) we are also happy to provide a hearty take-away lunch. Hours are 11:30am – 1:00pm.
Every Thursday year-round we offer fresh produce free of charge to anyone in Newport County. The weekly available produce varies depending on what we glean from the Aquidneck Grower’s Market, what we’re able to purchase through our collaborations with Garman Farm and Hawk & Handsaw Farm, what we receive from the RI Community Food Bank, and what is donated by private gardeners as well as a variety of community growing partners.
Registration usually opens late September.
When you register, you will also be eligible for Santa’s Workshop if you have children. At this event, you will be able to select your own gifts for them.

The holidays are such a special time, but for those who need help supplying food for their families, it can be stressful. To meet this need, the MLK Center offers holiday meal pantries.
Who is eligible? Any Newport county resident.
