RIVERSIDE — City-based Elisha Project partnered with the East Providence Boys & Girls Club to distribute food to more than 1,000 families Thursday morning, May 28, at Riverside Middle School.

The event continued the on-going effort of the two groups, which has been at the forefront in supporting residents of the city hit hard economically by the coronavirus pandemic.

“We average a couple events per week” said George Ortiz, Elisha Project co-founder. “As part of our Elisha Project Share Market program, we are focused on working with our partners to share healthy foods and products that are culturally specific to their communities.”

Added Damian Ramos, Boys & Girls Club Youth Coordinator & Community Outreach Director, “We're excited to be teaming up with the Elisha Project again. The project has been working with us on the evening mail program which produces 1,500 meal kits per week, which are then delivered to the people of East Providence."

East Providence Post and eastbayri.com staff photographer Rich Dionne shot the accompanying gallery of photos.
