What is the Cub Pantry?

The Cub Pantry is a choice food pantry serving Franklin Community School Corporation employees, students and their families. Until now, the only food assistance students and families receive is through the Gleaners BackSacks program at the elementary level. Wanting to extend this service to the entire school corporation, Franklin Community Schools, in partnership with Gleaners Food Brank introduces its first school based food pantry!
