How do I get food?

Step 1
You can call the Food Pantry (508-528-3115) to set up an appointment.

Step 2
You should bring proof of residence in Franklin (recent utility bill, Franklin sewer/water bill, etc.)
The proof needs to be something current and valid that shows you are residing in Franklin.

While here, you will complete an application that will give us information to determine how best to help you. Only one application per household will be accepted. You will tour the Pantry and participate in your first shopping experience. Plan on 45 minutes for your total visit.

Step 3
You can come to the pantry weekly for bread. You can schedule an appointment for food once every thirty (30) days.

The Food Pantry does not prepare a ‘bag’ of food for you. We will do that for special holiday packages (i.e. Thanksgiving). You are free to walk amongst the shelves to pick the items you would need to meet your needs.
