Who We Serve

Many of the neighbors we serve from our community are seniors who struggle to survive on a fixed income. Others may be disabled or have suffered catastrophic illnesses; and some have young families trying to survive a job loss. Regardless of their circumstances, they have a friend at Doorways.


How We Serve Our Neighbors

Doorways provides weekly groceries to our community whether they choose to shop for their own groceries indoors, or other shoppers may wish to receive pre-packaged groceries via curbside or volunteers will deliver groceries to homebound individuals. Members from the Seekonk Congregation Church donate their time to deliver these groceries. When shoppers arrive during our hours of operation on Saturday from 8-10am, each person is greeted with a volunteer who provides a number denoting their order to shop. Volunteers will provide guidance and inform each vehicle of their time to enter the food pantry. This helps to be efficient with shopping as well as reduce crowding inside the building. Once inside, volunteers greet the shoppers and shop alongside them and push the shopping cart and provide any guidance and support needed along the shopping experience.


Where Do We Get Our Food?

Our groceries come from many sources, with the primary source being The Greater Boston Food Bank. Fresh and nutritious perishable and non-perishable foods are ordered through an online system, thanks to Board member, Diane Fox, with Doorways volunteers picking up orders at the Food Bank’s warehouse in Boston. Doorways is charged a small per-pound fee.


Other ongoing sources of donations are received from:​

• Seekonk donation Drop-off location at Stop & Shop (Newman Avenue)

• Seekonk donation Drop-off location at Stop & Shop (Highland Avenue)

• Seekonk donation Drop-off location at Seekonk Library

• Seekonk donation Drop-off location at Seekonk Human Services

• Price Rite (Seekonk)

• Gold Medal Bakery

• and many individuals, businesses, community churches and schools—to name a few.
