Annual Fill the Belly Bus Food Drive Another Success!

The Hunger Task Force which consists of the the Center for Self-Reliance, Franklin Community Meals Program, Salvation Army, Orange Food Pantry and the Franklin Area Survival Center, had another successful Fill the Belly Bus food drive this past Friday.  As usual the community and local businesses came together and collected non-perishable foods and personal products. At the end of the drive all the food and products are broken up equally, so that all of the organizations is helped.  We thank everyone that helped this year, the businesses, the volunteers, employees and the communities for making this a very successful drive! Hope to see you again next year!
