The Franklin County Community Meals Program would not be able to function as smoothly as it does without the wonderful benefit of our volunteers. Each week, volunteers assist us in stocking our pantry shelves and in distributing bags and boxes of fresh vegetables, fresh fruit, and pantry staples at our two Franklin County food pantries: one on the campus of GCC and one in the center of Orange.

In addition, more than 40 volunteer groups take turns preparing and serving free meals at our meal sites in Greenfield, Orange, and Turners Falls. Regardless if these groups serve once a month or once a year, we are grateful for their participation. Our meals served more than 18,000 local residents last year: families, seniors, adolescents, children, homeless – people who are looking for the comfort of a safe place to eat and a warm place to find the companionship of other diners.

If you know of a group that would be interested in volunteering to prepare and serve dinner one night or more in a given year, please have them contact us for more information: fccmp.ma@gmail.com or 413.772.1033.
