Food Distribution

Every monday

Franklin Wright Settlements has implemented a socially distanced food distribution program. Every Monday at 3:00 p.m., participants stay in their car lined up outside our Charlevoix location (3360 Charlevoix) while we put a food box in your car's cabin or trunk. If you don't have a car, you can still come. Just walk up and find someone in a FWS shirt.
