Being a Good Neighbor

Dave's Fresh Marketplace is a Rhode Island company and for the most part, we employ Rhode Islanders. We live, work and play right here in the Ocean State, and we consider it home. What impacts Rhode Islanders also impacts us. When we donate to good causes, we feel it's the least we can do. After all, we have been blessed with so much - and we are honored to say "thank you."

During these difficult times, Dave's Fresh Marketplace has begun a Mini Granting program to those Non Profits who are working directly into the community. We are proud to have been able to support:

  • Rhode Island Meals on Wheels program
  • West Bay Community Action
  • Be the Change/Project Hand Up
  • NK Food Pantry
  • Cumberland Emergency Lunch Program/Bots and Girls Club facilitating
  • During the month of April, we provide Hot Fresh Pizzas every day to our area hospitals in support of our Frontline workers

Those Non Profits who are interested in learning more about our Mini Grant opportunities - please email our Charitable Team at donations@davesmarketplace.com. A team member will follow up with you.
