Greater Boston Food Bank Grant Helps Build Our Capacity to Offer Fresh Produce

The Franklin Food Pantry has received a $10,000 grant from the Greater Boston Food Bank enabling us to offer larger quantities of fresh and nutritious food to those we serve. The capacity-building grant will be used to fund equipment needs for the mobile pantry, food transportation, and Healthy Futures Market which offers fresh produce weekly from June to October.

“This grant makes a significant impact on our ability to offer fresh fruit and vegetables to our clients,” said Erin Lynch, Pantry executive director. “Thanks to the generous support of the Greater Boston Food Bank, our clients will have greater access to nutritious food which many families are unable to afford on a regular basis. We are so thankful for our partnership with the Food Bank.”

We owe additional thanks to the many local farms, groups and individuals who help supply our Healthy Futures Market with fresh produce for our clients.

The grant will help support our Healthy Futures Market which offers a variety of fresh produce that is locally grown.
