Valley Breeze: Pawtucket Soup Kitchen sees huge increase as others close

Needs are extensive, says Marchetti

PAWTUCKET - Adrienne Marchetti, director of the Pawtucket Soup Kitchen, said that after an initial drop-off in visitors there, “things have gotten insane” as other facilities shut down.

On March 18, the facility served 134 meals. A day later, March 19, that number was up to 212 meals.

“We will be offering Sunday dinner from 5 to 5:30 p.m. until this crisis is over,” she said. “It will get worse before it gets better as we are heading to the end of the month when folks are out of food and money.”
