Ipswich-Rowley Rotary will be holding its annual food drive to benefit the Ipswich Community Food Pantry, a program of The Open Door during the month of January.  This drive will help provide nutritious meals to our neighbors in need in the new year.
Needed food items include canned tuna and chicken, hearty soups and stews, canned fruits and vegetables, pasta and pasta sauce, cereal, rice, peanut butter, 100% juice and juice boxes, healthy snacks, cake, muffin and pancake mix.  No glass containers, please.

Food can be dropped off at any of six locations:
   Institution for Savings, Depot Square
   Institution for Savings, County Road
   Brookline Bank, Market Street
   Bank Gloucester, High Street
   MAC Fitness, Route 1, Rowley
   Ipswich YMCA, County Road
Rotary is grateful to these partner organizations for their support, and appreciates this opportunity to provide service to our communities.
Open Door President and CEO Julie LaFontaine commented that “Winter is here and food drives like this one help stock our shelves with staples people rely on.  We’re so thankful that the Ipswich-Rowley Rotary Club has coordinated this opportunity for the community to donate”.  She added that “Food prices are at a 40-year high, and every donation helps put food on the table for local people”.
Food can be donated at the establishments listed above from January 2 through 27.
