Franklin Fire and Police Fight Hunger with “Badges Give Back” Food Drive to Benefit One Gen Away
The Franklin Fire and Police Departments are teaming up to help fight hunger. They are kicking off a “Badges Give Back” food drive today. Non-perishable food donations are being accepted at FPD and FFD Headquarters, and at all eight of the city’s fire stations. Between now and January 2nd, you can drop off:
- Canned vegetables (mixed, corn, green beans)
- Canned beans
- Canned meat (tuna, chicken, etc.)
- Canned soup
- Peanut butter
- Spaghetti sauce
- Mac and cheese
“Badges Give Back” benefits One Gen Away, a Franklin-based non-profit that distributes healthy food to Middle Tennessee families in need. “We’re in the midst of a global food shortage this year in addition to general inflation, which has decreased food availability and dramatically increased food and gas prices,” said Chris Whitney, founder and CEO of OneGenAway. “There is so much need in our community during this time, and it is becoming more expensive for us to procure food at OneGenAway, so we are incredibly thankful to the Franklin Fire Department and Franklin Police Department for holding this food drive for us.”
