Fill the Belly Bus a great Success

The Hunger Task Force of Franklin County held their annual Fill the Belly Bus Food Drive this past Friday, August 14th. The Hunger Task Force is made up of members from the following agencies: The Salvation Army, Community Action, The Center for Self-Reliance (operates the food pantry in Greenfield), The Franklin County Community Meals Program and the Franklin Area Survival Center. This group meets almost every month to work on the hunger issues facing our area. They are on top of it when someone is in need. The food drive was a great success. I do not have the numbers yet, but the food pantry received many, many boxes of food items. We are so grateful to the community and local businesses for their continued support. On behalf of our clients, we thank everyone who contributed to this great event.
