The Franklin Food Pantry is here to help you in your time of need. We provide food and household necessities to supplement your main grocery sources. As a client-choice pantry, we encourage you to take only what you need. We are an alternative to most pantries which provide fixed boxes of food where you do not have an opportunity to choose your items.
Before using the Pantry’s services, you must complete our application. Once eligibility is determined, we will assess your needs to determine if there are other resources that could provide additional assistance.
