St. Joseph’s Fresh Food Distribution Program to Hold Anniversary Celebration

Wednesday, April 22, 2015

 

The St. Joseph Health Center will celebrate its one year anniversary on Thursday, April 23 with a speaking program and health fair. The fresh food distribution program will be available on this day, as it is on every fourth Thursday of the month from noon - 2 p.m. 

“Over this past year, we have made a difference by partnering with the Rhode Island Food Bank and Federal Hill House to make fresh food more readily available to the community we serve,” said Lester P. Schindel, CEO of CharterCARE Health Partners.

In it's first year, the program has distributed over 36,000 lbs of fresh produce to lower-income Rhode Islanders. 

The celebration and food distribution takes place at St. Joseph Health Center, located at 21 Peace Street in Providence. The speaking program will begin at 11:30 a.m. 

St. Joseph Health Services of Rhode Island is the corporate parent of Our Lady of Fatima Hospital and St. Joseph Health Center. The Catholic health system operates 270 beds, employs over 1,900 employees and has annual revenues in excess of $170 million.
