Nourish Our Neighbors

Sustaining lives and livelihoods of our neighbors

It takes a community to feed a community.

Nourish Our Neighbors provides meals prepared by local food businesses to our food insecure neighbors. Each week we distribute hundreds of meals at the point of need. No ID or registration is required.  This program supports lives and livelihoods, and is an innovative way to provide emergency food assistance while supporting the local economy.


Community Supported Meal Share

Purchase a  “Buy One / Give One” single-serving meal for yourself and bring home a freshly prepared dinner made by one of our members. When you buy that meal, another is automatically donated to a neighbor that is unable to pay for their own at this time. Menu items vary weekly. Quantities limited.

A Delicious Way to Support Your Community !

Your support sustains lives and livelihoods –THANK YOU!



Your generosity is building a more compassionate food system for Rhode Island. With your help, Hope & Main’s Nourish Our Neighbors program has distributed more than 45,000 meals through human services agencies in the East Bay & throughout Rhode Island.

Nourish Our Neighbors meets families at the point of need. Whether it is in a Women’s Shelter, a Senior Center, a Head Start Program, a Recovery Center, a school or church, our partners are able to provide nutritious prepared meals on the spot for every child and every family member in need. Prior to the pandemic 1 in 10 Rhode Islanders was food insecure. Now it is 1 in 6.  

When the most vulnerable among us seeks help for basic needs they are often also experiencing food insecurity.  That is why Hope & Main delivers Nourish Our Neighbors meals on a weekly basis to chest freezers we have placed at our nine partner sites.  This way, anyone can access a healthy meal at the moment they need it. No questions. No forms. No extra trips. Just as many nutritious meals as a family needs provided on the spot!
