Franklin Food Elves Sign-up

What is Food Elves?

Food Elves is the Franklin Food Pantry’s largest fundraiser of the year and it wraps up our holiday giving season. Every December high school and middle school students earn community service hours and raise money for The Pantry. Each student works in their elementary school district and is assigned streets where they drop off our signature purple envelopes and a flyer explaining the program at addresses. People can make donations via an online page or leave a check in the envelope and the student returns to pick it up on a certain day. The Pantry provides all the materials each elf needs and has District Parents who volunteer to help the elves. It’s a great program that makes a large impact to The Pantry. In 2020, the Food Elves raised over 80,000 dollars! If you would like to sign up to be a food elf for the 2021 season sign up here and someone will be in touch with you in October. Elves can earn between 10 and 15 hours of community service. If you have any questions please reach out to Laura Often at
