Unless you’ve lived in Providence for a long, long time, you probably wouldn’t know that our newly renovated building at 404 Broad Street started out as a livery, where neighbors stored their horses and carriages.

PROVIDENCE — A multimillion-dollar loan recently granted to Southside Community Land Trust (SCLT) is set to improve the availability of healthy and affordable food in CentralFalls, Pawtucket, and South Providence for years to come, according to an SLCT spokesperson.
Construction started in mid-October at 404 Broad Street in Providence, with plans to move into the facility in July, 2021.
More than 60 volunteers came together on May 4 to create the largest painted street in Rhode Island, as well as to add more greenery to Upper South Providence. The event was Trinity Square Together’s Care for the Square.
In the past year, SCLT laid the groundwork for a capital campaign–the GROW! Campaign–to renovate a building at 404 Broad Street in Providence’s Upper South Side. It will house our offices, a produce processing facility, a Youth Entrepreneurship Center and three leasable spaces for food businesses.
