OneGenAway to Bring Mobile Pantry to Centennial High

Anyone who wishes to receive a grocery cart of food can expect a variety of fresh produce, pantry staples, baked goods dairy and more.

Franklin nonprofit One Generation Away is bringing its Mobile Pantry to its home base on Saturday, April 22.

The food assistance organization will bring a tractor-trailer filled with food to the Centennial High School parking lot. Anyone who wishes to receive a grocery cart of food can expect a variety of fresh produce, pantry staples, baked goods, dairy and more.

“We are thrilled to be serving the Franklin community once again,” said Chris Whitney, founder and CEO of OneGenAway. “Franklin is where OneGenAway began, and it is crucial for us to continue to serve our home city as we continue to expand and grow into surrounding communities as well.”

The organization and its volunteers distribute food at 8:30 a.m. and will continue until all the food has been given away, usually about 10 a.m. Volunteers are encouraged to arrive at 7:30 to help sort and distribute the food.

OneGenAway operates its Mobile Pantry almost every Saturday throughout its service area, which includes Middle Tennessee, North Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle. The nonprofit will hold its next Franklin food distribution event on June 10.
