Improve the Quality of Life for Your Neighbors

Getting involved and volunteering doesn’t look the same to everyone. Whether you schedule a shift at The Pantry, volunteer in the Franklin Community Garden, organize a food and fund drive for your community group or corporation, donate food, donate funds or promote The Pantry by donning some swag, we need your help and could not serve the community the way we do without YOU!

Check out all the ways you can get involved with the award-winning Franklin Food Pantry!

Heather helps her friend out by driving her to appointments from time to time since she doesn’t have regular access to a car. They had met at a mother’s group at the library and despite growing up in different parts of the world, or maybe because of it, they hit it off. Today Heather was dropping her friend at The Pantry and was concerned, since it would be her first time there, and English wasn’t her first language. She needn’t have worried. Her friend said people were warm and welcoming from the second she crossed the threshold. The volunteers immediately pulled out their phones and fired up a translator app. They took the time needed to help her find ingredients that she could cook.
