Pete & Andy's Food Pantry in partnership with St. Peter's & St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Providence, Rhode Island is seeking bilingual volunteers to work Saturday mornings. We are a small parish with a big mission-- each Saturday, we provide groceries to 175-225 families from the 02908 zip code.

Most of our guests are Spanish speaking, primarily from South America. We need assistance doing guest registration/intake, and helping our guests shop in the food pantry.
** We are especially in need of help with registering new guests! 9:00 - 11:30 every Saturday morning. **
We welcome volunteers to come every week, once a month, or as often as you'd like. Arrival time is 9:30 am on Saturday morning (or 9:00 if you are helping with registration) and we are usually done by noon.

About Pete & Andy's Food Pantry

Mission Statement

The mission of Pete & Andy's Food Pantry is to eliminate food insecurity in our community.

Description

Pete & Andy’s Food Pantry is an outreach ministry of St. Peter’s & St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Providence, RI. Our church has been providing groceries to our community since 1970. In 2009 we became an official agency of the RI Food Bank and provided groceries to about 40 families twice a month. Once Covid hit, the Food Bank asked if we would consider opening every week to help combat the high level of food insecurity, especially among minority populations. Despite being a tiny parish with less than 30 members, we said yes. Now, with the help of dozens of volunteers, Pete & Andy’s Food Pantry proudly serves between 130 - 160 families each week.
