About the FCCMP
In March 1984, the Social Justice group at All Souls Unitarian Church wanted to start a program of free meals for the needy in Franklin County, and invited religious and social organizations to provide and serve the meals. The first meal was served in Greenfield in July 1984. Later, meal sites were also started in Turners Falls and Orange.
The Orange Food Pantry opened in 1995 to provide food and household supplies monthly to area residents with emergency needs.
The GCC Food Pantry opened in 2011 to provide food and household supplies monthly to GCC students and staff with emergency needs.
Our three meal sites and two food pantries are largely funded by the generosity of our community – people like YOU – neighbors helping neighbors.
