Governor Gina Raimondo, Pawtucket Mayor Donald Grebien, and other key partners joined Farm Fresh Rhode Island in celebrating the opening of their Harvest Kitchen Café + Corner Store in downtown Pawtucket, and expansion of their local food processing capabilities in the state-of-the-art commercial kitchen there. Monday’s event kicked off a week of free giveaways at Harvest Kitchen in appreciation for the community’s support.
Join us for an afternoon of special guests, local food sampling, and an inside look at our new café + corner store! We are located right on the corner of Main St at Bayley St in downtown Pawtucket.
Thank you Mayor Jorge Elorza, U.S. Conference of Mayors, and Wells Fargo for the tremendous support. We look forward to the expansion of Harvest Kitchen that this #CommunityWINS grant will enable at our future #RIFoodHub and continuing to work together to strengthen our local food system.
