BankNewport made a $5,000 grant to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank in support of its Kids Cafe initiative, a program that currently feeds more than 600 children at nine sites in Providence and Newport.

The food bank, a nonprofit in Providence that solicits, stores and distributes donated food, developed its partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs and community centers to address the food needs of club members. The program provides workshops, food demonstrations and activities designed to promote healthy eating habits in children.

“BankNewport is extremely proud to extend our third grant in support of the Kids Cafe initiative in Newport,” stated BankNewport President and CEO Sandra J. Pattie. “It’s the fundamental collaboration between the food bank and the Boys & Girls Club that ensures our local youth have access to nutritious food in a fun and caring environment. We hold the important work of these true community partners in great regard.” •
