Third Annual “Wheels for Meals” Car Show Fundraiser on August 20

Show was canceled for two years due to COVID

Press release
“Wheels for Meals” car show fundraiser invites car owners to participate at this annual fundraiser for the Twin Rivers Interfaith Food Pantry.

After canceling this fun event for two years due to the pandemic, Twin Rivers Interfaith Food Pantry is scheduling the third annual Wheels for Meals Car Show Fundraiser for Saturday, August 20, from 10 AM to 2 PM, at the Franklin Shopping Center, 880 Central Street in Franklin.  Car parking at the event starts at 9 AM.   Come and enjoy this awesome event!

The event is free and open to the public.  Entrance fee for show cars is by monetary donation or donation of nonperishable food items.  At the event, a raffle of prizes from generous area businesses, a 50/50 raffle, and food sales provides vital funding for the Pantry’s mission to provide healthy food and nutrition resources to neighbors in need.  We are grateful to our show sponsors: Aubuchon Hardware, Benson Auto, Hannaford, Watts Water Technologies, Service Credit Union, Citizens Bank, and Franklin Savings Bank. 

The Pantry provides nonperishable food items, fresh produce, frozen meat, dairy items, baked goods, and personal hygiene items to residents in need in Franklin, Andover, and a number of other surrounding communities.  We currently serve an average of 100 households each week.  

Service hours are from 9 to 11 AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and from 5 to 7 PM on Wednesdays. The Pantry is located in the lower level of 2 Central Street in Franklin.  The entrance is off the parking lot behind the building.

Always appreciated (and always needed!) are volunteers, plastic or paper grocery bags, fresh garden produce, eggs, and nonperishable food items.  Call 603 934-2662 or email for more information.
