The Franklin Food Bank teamed up with Nestlé Waters North America to sort through more than 6,000 pounds of food from a recent food drive.

Nestlé Waters North America, 501 Cottontail Lane, is the 3rd-largest non-alcoholic beverage company in the country, carrying a variety of quality water brands. Nestlé Waters NA maintains strong ties to the local community through their support of employee volunteerism.

Serena Bennerman, Operations Manager of the Food Bank, who oversaw Nestlé Waters said, “They worked so hard. We almost had to look for work for them to do because they were so fast and efficient.”

According to Frank Hasner, Executive Director of the Franklin Food Bank, “Volunteer groups, like the team from Nestlé Waters NA, are vital to helping us handle the volume of food we provide to our clients. Volunteering allows participants to bond with each other while contributing a valuable service for their neighbors.”

The Food Bank provides volunteer opportunities for every age.
