Remington Middle School - Turkey Trot - photo essay

Remington Middle School held their annual Turkey Trot to raise awareness on hunger and collect food for the Franklin Food Pantry.

Food Pantry Executive Director, Anne Marie Bellevance, spoke with the students before showing a video on food hunger.

Principal Paul Peri guided the students through some warm up activities in the gym before going outside to run two laps around the building.

Through the generous efforts of groups like this, the Franklin Food Pantry has prepared and delivered over 250 turkey dinners to Franklin families in the past two weeks.

Donations of food and money are welcome. You can drop off food and non-food items at the Food Pantry. We are located in the Rockland Trust parking lot opposite the new fire station downtown Franklin. You can either donate online or mail a check to the Food Pantry. Information on these options are available on the Food Pantry website
