Food Pantry Drive!!

Did you know that one in 10 people in Massachusetts is in danger of going hungry?  The risk of hunger exists in every county in the Commonwealth, including ours.  Please help our local community by participating in the annual Food Pantry Drive at Boxford Town Meeting on Tuesday, May 14th.  Please bring your  donations  to the food collection table at the entrance to the Middle School between 6:30-7:30 PM.   Cash donations will also be accepted.  Our local food pantries report the need for: boxed cereals,  peanut butter,  juice boxes, kids’ snacks, canned tuna and chicken, canned soups & stews, beans (black, kidney,  baked, garbanzo.), pasta sauce and tomato products, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, salad dressings, rice and rice mixes, bar soap, shampoo, conditioner, dish soap, toilet paper.  Pantries are not able to accept perishable items, opened packages, and items with expired use by dates.  Your donation is greatly appreciated by our community.
