Donate Food

There are several opportunities throughout the year to donate food and other household goods to the Pantry. We are fortunate to receive an abundance of food and products through Stamp Out Hunger, the Franklin Downtown Partnership’s Food Elves, numerous Food and Fund Drives, and corporate and individual donations.

Monetary donations are becoming increasingly popular. They enable us to purchase fresh food, manage our inventory more efficiently, buy essentials that are not collected in food drives, and meet community need all year long. Learn more.

A local high school student, Lauren Ballinger, produced this video to help us spread the word about how monetary donations help the Pantry. Narrated by Camille Farnan, the video brings you inside the Pantry so you can fully appreciate all the work that happens behind the scenes. Thank you, Lauren and Camille, for sharing your time and talents in making this video!

If your preference is to donate goods, here are some ways you can help:

Hold a Food and Fund Drive

Drop Off Nonperishables


Resources for Other Donated Goods

We can only accept nonperishable food, personal hygiene items and cleaning supplies. If you are looking to donate clothes, household goods, dishes, furniture, etc. please make arrangements with another charity for such items. Some organizations offer free home pick-up. Here are some links with more information:

American Veterans

Big Brothers Big Sisters Foundation

Epilepsy Foundation New England
