Our Mission is to work in partnership with the community to alleviate hunger in Franklin County.
FCCMP provides meals, fellowship. food, and household supplies to the people of the area and in collaboration with other groups, works to address the structural causes of hunger nationwide.
A donation of $12.00 will provide 6 hot meals at one of our meal sites.
A donation of $25.00 will provide 16 bag lunches for a hungry family to take home.
A donation of $50.00 will buy 250 pounds of food from the Food Bank of Western MA to fill our pantry shelves.
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, a huge success, 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 Greenfield Community College Food Pantry opened in 2011 to provide food and household supplies monthly to GCC students and staff with emergency needs.
Doors open at 5:00 p.m. and all meals are served at 5:30 p.m.
