Emergency Community Food Pantry of Franklin County
   
 

Do You Need Groceries?

Minimize

Families or individuals living in Franklin County who are in need of emergency groceries must first visit a participating church or agency to start the process. Some of the participating churches and agencies are Buck Run Baptist Church,  Capital City Christian Church, Crestwood Baptist Church, DCBS, East Frankfort Baptist Church, First Christian Church, First Presbyterian Church, Kentucky Counseling, Memorial Baptist, Salvation Army, Simon House, and The Point Community.   The process is designed to help protect those families in desperate need and insure that donations to the Food Pantry are being directed to those families.

The staff at the church will collect information about your family (name, address, telephone number, number in family, number of children, etc) and a description of your current emergency grocery need.

That information will be forwarded to our data center which monitors all recipients of Food Pantry groceries.  Upon verification of need, family data and time since last receipt of groceries from the Food Pantry, your request will be forwarded to Food Pantry volunteers who will assemble a box of groceries for your family.

That food box can be picked up at the same local church where you asked about receiving help.

The entire process will take approximately one half day.
