Price Rite Supports Doorways Food Pantry

Price Rite donates several boxes of frozen meats on a weekly basis, and is a key contributor in support of Seekonk families in need. Price Rite also made a monetary contribution of $500 to Doorways for purchases from the Greater Boston Food Bank

The volunteers and clients of the Doorways Food Pantry would like to say “thank you” to the Price Rite on Taunton Avenue in Seekonk for their ongoing weekly donations of frozen meat products in support of our weekly mission. Over the last several years we estimate that Price Rite has donated in excess of 15,000 pounds of frozen meat to help Seekonk residents who are facing challenging times in their lives. The food they donate helps fill the freezers and ease the financial strain of feeding families. Price Rite has partnered with Doorways for the last three years, and partnered with the Greater Boston Food Bank for years before that. In addition, the Price Rite Corporation recently made a contribution of $500 to Doorways for purchases from the Greater Boston Food Bank. More than sixty local families rely on Doorways on a regular basis, and Doorways, in turn, relies on people like Jeff and the staff at Price Rite.

At Doorways, we estimate that over the last fifteen years we have given away over one million pounds of food at no cost to our clients. And yet the need continues. Price Rite helps us meet that need. Please support Price Rite as they continue to support our community.
