Feeding the Hungry in Franklin County

The purpose behind such a large food distribution program for Franklin County decreases the burden of childhood hunger throughout the county by providing assistance to other organizations. In the SafeKids service area, over 15% children live at or below the federal poverty level – a condition that almost always equates to missed meals and hunger.
