Greater Boston Food Bank

Working together to provide at least one meal a day to those in need

As a member agency of The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB), the Franklin Food Pantry is vital to the GBFB objective of providing at least one meal a day to those in need. This partnership has helped the Franklin Food Pantry:

  • Increase capacity to meet the need in Franklin
  • Launch the Mobile Pantry to bring food to people who have difficulty getting to the Pantry – seniors, disabled individuals, and families with small children
  • Leverage buying power to acquire quality food that is otherwise unaffordable, such as frozen meats and other high-protein, high-nutrient items
  • Implement a nutritional food ranking system to ensure the provision of healthier, more balanced food

“Our mission to end hunger in Eastern Massachusetts depends on the strength of our partnering agencies to get nutritious food into the homes of those in need. The Franklin Food Pantry is one of our strongest allies in the fight against hunger. We are impressed with all that the Pantry achieved last year and believe its impact will continue to grow.”
