Food Bank shares delicious recipe

Starting Her Own Business & Giving Back

"The Community Kitchen has been a life-changing program, I will never forget,” Nithya Vadivelu said two years ago as she graduated from the Community Kitchen culinary job training program at the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. After completing our program, Nithya opened her own restaurant, Dosa Express, in Manville.
She hasn't forgotten about Community Kitchen. “It is part of my life. The instructors, they are part of my family,” she says. Last class, she came back and demonstrated how to cook vegetable biryani to the students.
There's so much more to Nithya's story, we wanted to share it with you.

Nithya's Pav Bhaji Recipe

Nithya's recipe for pav bhaji (a dish featuring spicy vegetables and warm buttered bread) was used by Community Kitchen as their dish at Empty Bowls in 2018. She's graciously agreed to share the recipe with the Food Bank community. It's great for the home cook looking to try something ambitious.

Donate Appreciated Securities by Year-End

With the stock market at record highs, gifting appreciated securities to the Food Bank prior to the end of 2019 may mean additional tax benefits to you while helping Rhode Islanders in need. For instructions on how to transfer stock to the Food Bank, please contact our Director of Annual Giving, Jill Gonsalves.
