Food Drive?

Is your organization, school, or faith community thinking of having a food drive for the Falmouth Service Center? That is great news! FSC is running low in our donated food shelves and would love to be able to offer additional items to our clients.  Our main Pantry shelves, that we fill daily with items from the Greater Boston Food Bank, are full but the front shelves which allow us us to offer additional choices to our clients are running very low. Click here for ideas on what to donate! Thank you! front_pantry_shelves.jpg

FRESH Market 

Many have inquired about our FRESH Market Program, which is targeted for households affiliated with the Falmouth Public School district. If you are in need of food for your family, particularly fresh produce, we recommend that you stop by the Falmouth Service Center and register as a client.  You can pick up not only fresh produce, but also milk, eggs, cheese and plenty of the basics (cereal, pasta, peanut butter, etc.) for your family!

We’re Here to Help

There are people in Falmouth who cannot always afford to buy food, or to heat their home during the winter. There are people who live for days or weeks at a time with no electricity because they've fallen behind on their bills.

  • The cafeteria worker at your child's school who is a single parent
  • The checkers and baggers at your local grocery and retail store
  • The teacher assistant in your child's day care center
  • Your neighbor down the street who has been laid off and is having trouble meeting his/her mortgage payment
  • The elderly woman/man on a fixed income who lives across the street
  • Your next door neighbor whose husband left her with three small children
  • The families who have chronically ill children, or are themselves struggling with incapacitating illness
  • The man or woman who drives your child's school bus

You or someone you love may have the need for assistance within the year. You can never know what will happen, but it's good to know we're here to help.

 

With over 400 volunteers, the campus is truly a place
where Falmouth residents can be of service, and in turn,
can come if they are in need of service.
