Franklin Employee Food Drive
During the January 3rd thru January 20th City of Franklin "New Year's Resolution Employee Food Drive", 1,032 pounds of food was collected. The Franklin Health Department collaborated with the Dietetic Department of Mount Mary University to conduct this year's food drive. The collection campaign centered on the "Healthy Shelves" model that offers employees healthy food shopping lists and insight into food pantry users. Information was distributed via employee email. The City's food collection is divided among five food pantries - Dennis Amaturo, pictured above, collected some of the food for the St. Martin of Tours food pantry.
