Masconomo Council 1232 Knights of Columbus Manchester- by-the-Sea is sponsoring an open-ended drop-off food drive to benefit The Open Door Food Pantry, Gloucester and Ipswich. The need for nutritious food is always present, but the need on Cape Ann is far greater now during this Covid-19 pandemic.
All are encouraged to leave food donations in the designated bins in the garage on Friend Street behind Sacred Heart Church, School Street Manchester-by-the-Sea.
Food items most needed by The Open Door are: Peanut Butter; Canned Tuna, Chicken, Turkey; Healthy Snack Items; Breakfast Cereal; 100% Juice / Juice Boxes; Hearty Soups; Canned Vegetables and Fruits; Spaghetti Sauce; Macaroni & Cheese; Rice; Noodles and Pasta; and Cake, Muffin, and Pancake Mix. [Note: Please no glass items-jars, bottles, etc.]
Knights of Council 1232 will transport the donated food to The Open Door Food Pantry weekly. They thank all donors for their generous contributions. This food drive is open-ended and is on-going. It is a 24/7 effort. Grand Knight Bill Busta said, “This a good way to extend a hand of friendship to our neighbors feeling the economic pinch of this pandemic. We are glad to help.”
