“I didn’t realize that in Franklin there was such a need. There were kids that weren’t getting fed. When I realized that I was wrong, that there was hunger all around us, that gave me the incentive to give back.”
Please join us to learn about the Franklin Community Gardens and the Franklin Food Pantry Veggie Garden Project. There will be an introduction of the gardens and information on how the Project, our volunteers and partners are working together helping create community and awareness of food insecurities. This Project has many opportunities throughout the growing season including garden maintenance of the garden beds, harvesting Tuesday and Friday mornings and bringing produce to the Pantry.
Recently, we have fielded many questions regarding the progress of our new building and we wanted to give the community an update.
As I wrap up my first month as the new Executive Director for The Pantry, I want to say hello and share some updates with you.
April is our last month of Project Envoy, a community driven project, designed to support local restaurants who in-turn will donate some of their proceeds to The Franklin Food Pantry.
