Scouts from BSA Troops 1 & 9 continue to assist with curbside distribution at Doorways


Doorways Food Pantry continues to distribute thousands of dollars of groceries on a twice-a-month basis to needy Seekonk households. The increased need across the state has caused the Greater Boston Food Bank to drastically reduce the amount of food that is available at low cost, and Doorways has been forced to purchase food at full retail, and to supplement the limited food distribution with prepaid grocery cards to help clients on weeks where grocery pickup is not offered. “It’s certainly been a challenge” said Diane Fox, who does all the purchasing for the food pantry. “But we will keep going until the well runs dry.”

On behalf of the volunteers and clients of Doorways, we would like to thank the many Seekonk residents who have been supporting our mission with donations of food and money. Food donations can be dropped off to Doorways on Saturdays between 8:00 and 10:00 at the North School (2 North Street) in Seekonk. Donations to Doorways can be sent to PO Box 295, Seekonk, MA 02771. More than sixty local families rely on Doorways every week, and Doorways relies on people like you. As always, thank you for your support.
