Food distribution is located at the South side of the building beginning at 9:30 am and ending at noon. Distributions are usually on the 1st & 3rd Tuesdays of the month. Holiday schedules may change.
To qualify to receive food you must complete a short form, The Emergency Food Assistance Program Certification, which states that you meet the income guidelines for the United States Department of Agriculture.
In between our regular distributions, we also receive fresh vegetables from Farm Share on a regular basis. This is also distributed on Tuesdays until gone. When we have fresh food items it is posted on Facebook. Please go to Franklin County Food Pantry and like the page so you will be notified when we have items available.
