Franklin County Virginia food pantries.

Most of the Franklin County Virginia food pantries are part of the nationwide Feeding America organization. They partner with the national food bank on feeding the hungry, coordinating hunger prevention programs, and trying to ensure that overall nutritional needs are met.

Anyone that is struggling and facing hunger can drop in at a food bank. However the resources are limited in the number of people that can be assisted. But if a pantry does not have the capacity to assist a client, they will try to direct them to other programs, such as SNAP food stamps or other public aid. The goal is to help as many people in Franklin County as possible avoid hunger.

There are other resources available too. There are regional cooking classes, community gardens for fresh fruit or vegetables, and Thanksgiving as well as Christmas meal services. Residents of all ages, ranging from seniors to children can get help as well. Even parents of newborns can seek seek free infant formula from charities.
