ABOUT THE FRANKLIN FOOD PANTRY The Franklin Food Pantry offers supplemental food assistance and household necessities once a month to eligible households. Bread and fresh produce is available daily for clients. Typical clients include working families trying to make ends meet, people experiencing a temporary job loss, individuals whose SNAP (food stamps) benefits are reduced, and seniors. A growing number of seniors are seeking help from the Pantry since most are on a fixed income and are impacted by such things as medication costs and higher fuel expenses. As a private, nonprofit organization, we depend entirely on donations from community members, corporations, foundations and other strategic partners. We receive NO funding from the town or state. There is no charge to clients for Pantry items or services. Programs include a Mobile Pantry which delivers food monthly to select neighborhoods where people have difficulty getting to the downtown location; Cooking Matters classes that teach families how to shop smarter and cook delicious, affordable meals; and a Healthy Futures Market that offers fresh produce from June to October. The high cost of fresh fruits and vegetables can be a barrier to wholesome nutrition for many families. Emergency food bags and seasonal items, such as holiday meal packages, are also provided. Learn how to get help. Because we are a client-choice pantry, visitors are empowered to select only what they need to meet their own personal dietary needs. Many pantries provide fixed boxes of food where clients do not have an opportunity to choose their items. Only residents of Franklin can officially register with the Pantry to receive ongoing support. However, emergency packages of food are provided to those in need who come to the Pantry for hunger relief. As a member agency of The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB), the Franklin Food Pantry is part of the GBFB objective of providing at least one meal a day to those in need.
