September is Hunger Action Month

hunger awareness month

There might be a month dedicated to hunger awareness but, unfortunately, many still struggle with hunger on a daily basis.

This month we would like to educate you about the big picture of hunger and what hunger looks like in Franklin. Hunger is not only growling tummies before a meal. Hunger has an impact on the health, education and welfare of our communities.

Please click on the Hunger Action Month button. Take a minute to learn about hunger and how you can help the Franklin Food Bank fight hunger so our neighbors don’t have to struggle with it every day.


We have a lot of exciting events coming up in the next few months that we hope you can participate in.

September 19th – Visit us at Franklin Day

October 17th – Fifth Annual CanalFest

October 18th – CROP Walk for Hunger (details to follow)


We appreciate your food donations but please do not leave them outside the Food Bank. Our normal business hours are Monday through Thursday from 9AM until 3PM and Saturdays from 9:30AM until Noon. If it is more convenient, you can also drop off your donations of non-perishable food items to the Franklin Township Senior Center (DeMott Lane); ShopRite (Elizabeth Avenue); or one of the three Franklin Township Stop & Shop grocery stores. If you have any questions or a large donation, please contact us at 732.246.0009.



The Franklin Township Food Bank provides food and assistance to people in need in an atmosphere of dignity and respect. We address the needs of Franklin Township residents who require an emergency supply of food, and to do so at no cost to them. We are acting as a conduit between those who have food and/or funds to spare and share, and those who need help to put more food on their table than they can currently afford to purchase themselves. Together we CAN feed those in need!
