Nutrify Performance Nutrition for Women, LLC is proud to announce our sponsorship of the Franklin Turkey Trot in Franklin, Massachusetts this Thanksgiving. The annual 5k benefits The Franklin Food Pantry.
For some, access to healthy, nutritious food is not always a given. According to the USDA Economic Research Service1, in 2021, 1 in 10 US households (10.2%) were food insecure meaning they did not always have access to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members. And while Massachusetts has a lower proportion of households experiencing food insecurity (8.4%), we are grateful to be able to help our local food pantry nourish our local community, especially in this upcoming holiday season when the Franklin Food Pantry will make the holidays brighter for more than 500 local families by giving out holiday meal kits at Thanksgiving and year-end.
If you are local, please join us for a fun 5k on Thanksgiving morning to support the great work of the Franklin Food Pantry. If not, please consider supporting your local food bank help serve your community this holiday season. To find & support your local food bank, search using your zip code: https://foodfinder.us/
