About Our Programs

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.

Bread Pantry

Signup starts at 9:00 a.m., distribution at 11:00 a.m., then continuing as long as supplies last or until 2:00 p.m.

Heating Assistance/Clothing Vouchers

When funds are available, energy assistance is given to those that do not qualify for the state energy program and clothing vouchers are offered on an emergency basis.

Kids and Teens Character Development Program

Featuring: self-esteem lessons, team building, sports, arts and crafts, literacy, homework help, a hot meal, and much more!
