The Open Door Ipswich Community Food Pantry

In January 2016, The Open Door merged with the Ipswich Food Pantry to become The Open Door Ipswich Community Food Pantry. The Food Pantry offers free fresh milk, eggs, meats, fresh fruits and vegetables along with frozen, canned and dry goods and other groceries to families and individuals in a 100% choice food pantry environment. It is a multi-service nutrition resource center, centrally located and handicapped accessible in the Agawam Housing Neighborhood. Ask us about SNAP (Food Stamp) eligibility. This satellite food pantry serves the communities of Ipswich, Essex, Hamilton, Rowley, Boxford, Topsfield, and Wenham.
