Supplemental Food Pantry


People are surprised to learn that even in our township there are many people, young, elderly and in-between, who are lacking the resources to purchase enough food for themselves and/or their families. The Franklin Township Food Pantry exists to aid those who might need food on an emergency basis. We want to make sure that no one in Franklin Township goes hungry. Franklin Township residents may call 317-780-1700, ext. 101 to request emergency food assistance. The office staff will put together available items for pick up during normal office hours. Proof of residency will be required at the time of pick up.
