There is hunger in Williamson County
There are many reasons families face hunger. Differing situations such as a medical issue, low wages, being a single parent can cause the need to seek help. GraceWorks offers food carts, student fuel bags, holiday food boxes and mobile food pantries.
Qualifying families can receive a shopping cart of perishable and non-perishable food monthly, allowing families to stretch their dollars and spend their resources on other basic needs.
Neighbors can make an appointment to come shop at our Food Pantry or pick-up food at a curbside appointment.
The Food Pantry is available to anyone including Neighbors outside of Williamson County.
Mobile Pantries provide access to food for families and individuals who may have trouble coming to our Food Pantry in Franklin. Mobile Food Pantries are hosted monthly in Fairview and in other locations throughout the year.
The Mobile Food Pantry is available to anyone including Neighbors outside of Williamson County.
Over 5000 students in Williamson County qualify for the free/reduced meal programs through the school systems. GraceWorks offers them bags of nutritional food for the weekend.
An important part of holidays is sharing a meal together with loved ones. Thanksgiving boxes are distributed in a special Mobile Food Pantry in November. At Christmas, donors are matched with families to provide Holiday Food Boxes. Items such as ham, turkey, potatoes, milk and eggs, bread and dessert are included.
