Hope Rises With You!

Thank you. Because of you, hope is rising!

Hope Rises When We Nourish Our Neighbors

Nourish Our Neighbors is Hope & Main’s signature emergency food assistance program that began during Covid and is still an innovative solution to the persistent and growing challenge of food insecurity in Rhode Island.

Through your generosity, we have distributed over 50,000 meals to our neighbors in need. All driven by your kindness!

Hope Rises When:

  • You provide a meal to a family that is struggling to feed their children at a time when inflation is at a 40 year high;
  • Our community partners such as the Warren Housing Authority, Head Start or the Women’s Resource Center can provide a free, nutritious meal to anyone who asks for food assistance that day; and
  • Small food businesses can earn a few thousand dollars by preparing Nourish Our Neighbors meals for Hope & Main to distribute across the State.

It’s a virtuous circle

Hope & Main pays the small food businesses at our incubator to make thousands of meals each week that we distribute to more than a dozen community-based partnering agencies. These agencies can then provide a meal to an individual or family at the point of need, versus sending them to a food pantry or elsewhere. No questions asked.

Please consider a gift to Nourish Our Neighbors today. Every gift of $10 pays for a meal for a neighbor in need and goes a long way toward supporting economic empowerment for small, local food businesses.

These are not numbers. These are neighbors. And YOU can help.

Thank you for caring. When we lift those among us who are most in need--

Hope Rises!

With Gratitude,
