FFP FY2022 Annual Report

We are excited to share our FY22 Annual Report. This snapshot of Franklin Food Pantry's finances, programs, donors, staff and neighbors provides an update on our operations and the impact of your support.


This year's report highlights our strategic decision to make permanent the multiple methods of distribution, and other initiatives, implemented during COVID, including Weekly In-Person Shopping (instead of monthly), additional Mobile Pantry sites, Curbside Distribution, organic Community Garden produce and Home Delivery.

Annual Report FY2022

We received a note recently that reminded us of the positive impact

we are making together as a community.

"Thank you for making the experience of needing and asking for assistance such an easy, positive, and comfortable one. It can be very difficult to disclose to others when your family is struggling. Everyone at the Franklin Food Pantry has been so warm and welcoming that my anxiety about the process is gone."
