In the late Spring of 2020, Chocolate Milk Cafe- RI, was informed of the new structural and ownership change National Chocolate Milk, Inc.


Chocolate Milk Cafe- RI,  a chapter affiliate of Chocolate Milk Cafe Inc, began with the introduction of Hakima Tafunzi Payne and Quatia Osorio, at the All-Inclusive Breastfeeding Conference in April 2016 held by the Rhode Island Breastfeeding Coalition. Under the guidance of Hakima Payne, the foundation of Chocolate Milk Cafe-RI began in July 2016. 

The restructuring of the organization has led to many changes, we will no longer submit for local fiscal or in kind donations. All donations must be made through the National Chocolate Milk Cafe, Inc. Our logo has been changed for continuity and support of these changes.


Our Journ3i continues to support and promote the work of eliminating health disparities for communities and color and foster opportunities for health equity throughout the State of Rhode Island, City of Providence.

Chocolate Milk Cafe RI is still hosted once a month, on the first Thursday of every month at4:30 p.m., to find out more click here.
