New building update – September 2021

The Board of Directors, at the recommendation of Franklin Food Pantry leadership, Franklin Food Pantry Building Committee, and the team of professionals hired to build out 138 East Central Street, has decided to put 138 East Central Street on the market for sale, effective immediately. We are extremely disappointed that this property no longer meets the operational needs of FFP.  We are appreciative of the hundreds of hours of work spent exploring every possible avenue to successfully open the building as the Pantry’s new location.  Not only have staff and our team of architects, builders, engineers, traffic consultant, legal services, and site planning experts worked tirelessly to vet potential solutions, the public also has been incredibly supportive of this endeavor.  After almost 18 months of work, we concluded that while 138 East Central was a viable option for FFP pre-pandemic, Covid-19 so drastically changed our operations and programming that the property no longer allowed us to fully meet the needs of our neighbors.
