After resurrecting the Franklin Food Pantry from almost closing its doors, Executive Director Anne Marie Bellavance has resigned to return to a career in Human Resources. In the 30 months since Bellavance took on the role of Executive Director the Pantry has become financially stable. The Pantry is now providing more food and non-food items to 25% more clients compared to the prior fiscal year. In keeping with the strategy of providing healthy food, clients are now able to pick up fresh produce every week throughout the year.
The Board of Directors wishes Anne Marie all the best in her future endeavors. They appreciate all the great work that has been accomplished under her leadership.
The Pantry will remain operating in the capable hands of current Pantry Manager Linda Sottile. The Pantry is open from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM Tuesday through Friday.

We believe in the power of community. Our mission is to connect the resources needed to sustain a healthy life. The Franklin Food Pantry was established in 1987. We provide supplemental food and non-food items to those in need in Franklin. The Food Pantry was housed in various temporary locations until June 2009 when thanks to the generosity and support of Rockland Trust, the Pantry moved to our current home at 43 West Central Street. The Franklin Food Pantry is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
