Project Envoy featured In the Boston Globe: Project Envoy supports Franklin restaurants, residents in need.
The Interfaith Food Security Team has launched 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.
On December 21, The Franklin Food Pantry distributed 245 holiday meals to our neighbors. Our neighbors received a delicious Boars Head ham with brown sugar glaze, side dishes, a warm holiday gift, candy, cookies and either Dunkin or Starbucks coffee.
In this season of giving, we often see the reverse advent calendar meme being shared on social media. The idea is that on each day of December a person would donate an item to give to a local food pantry and then on December 24, the food is delivered. While we appreciate the spirit behind the idea, we wanted to take the opportunity to share the best way that you can help The Franklin Food Pantry this holiday season and throughout the year!
The Franklin Food Pantry gives thanks to our community for helping us fulfil 220 Thanksgiving baskets for our neighbors. Our neighbors received a turkey, potatoes, vegetables, rolls, stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy, coffee, choice of an Apple or Pumpkin Pie, and a Yankee Candle votive to help make their meal festive.
