Where Does the Money Go?

Ninety-Eight cents of every dollar contributed goes directly to programs that alleviate hunger and build food-secure communities.

We are often asked how many families can I feed with my donation. That is a difficult question to answer because we receive food donations and we purchase food to provide a consistent food package. Do we calculate this value on our cost through our food coop, which fluctuates, or do we calculate it on what it would cost at the grocery store? Instead, the Franklin Food Bank, like most food banks, measure their food on how many food packages we serve.
