Greencastle-Antrim Food Pantry Needs for May

With record price increases, there is an increasing need for support from your local food pantry. Without support from volunteers throughout a community, food pantries are unable to provide food to the people who need it most.

You may wonder how “just you” can help or if you make a difference. Even if you make a small donation every year or a few canned food items a month, you are helping keep their shelves stocked and providing more food to the people who benefit from the service.

Let’s take action

Here is a list of what the Greencastle-Antrim Food Pantry can use in May. 

Please remember to contact the pantry to schedule a drop-off time for May the 23rd. You can reach them by email at or by calling 717-597-8333 ext. 2.

Who We Are

The Franklin County Free Press, established by Vicky Taylor in 2019, emerged as a beacon of local journalism for the residents of Franklin County. Under Vicky's leadership, it quickly became an essential source of news, particularly at a time when major newspaper publications were increasingly overlooking local coverage.

On January 1, 2022, the torch was passed to Nathan Neil and his firm, Neil Publishing, LLC. Neil, a local entrepreneur with multiple thriving businesses in Chambersburg, shares Vicky's fervent commitment to both the community and the world of local journalism.

Rooted in the heart of Franklin County and powered by its residents, the Franklin County Free Press continues to bridge the gap, ensuring that the local stories, events, and issues that matter most to the community remain in the spotlight.
