About Our Programs

Feeding Programs

The Salvation Army's Soup Kitchen serves nutritious meals to those in need every Friday and Sunday from 5:00 – 5:45 p.m. The food pantry is available to eligible individuals residing in Newport County on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.

Food Pantry

Open to families and individuals who are residents of Newport County. It has been a staple service of The Salvation Army for many years. We believe that all adults deserve the dignity of choosing what foods they want for themselves and their families. Customers may "shop" the pantry once in a 30-day period.

Holiday Programs

With the help and generosity of businesses, schools, social groups, churches, and individuals, we were able to provide happiness to those in need during the holiday season. We distribute Thanksgiving baskets and Christmas toys each year. Please call in September to find out the dates for signups, which take place every October. We also look for employees and volunteers each year for our Seasonal Kettle Campaign. Full day or half-day opportunities are available. Please contact Captain LeNissa Rivera for more information by clicking on her name or calling the office at (401) 846-3234.
