Massachusetts Emergency Food Assistance Program
Have you heard about this critical piece of MA legislation that provides funding to purchase a consistent supply of quality, nutrient rich foods and locally grown fresh produce for families in need? 100% of the MA Emergency Food Assistance Program (MEFAP) funding goes directly to the Food Bank Coalition of Massachusetts and is essential in our work to create a hunger-free state. To learn what you can do to help advocate for MEFAP, click here.
We will be adding a new feature to our Home Page that will highlight special client stories and we would like you to be a part of it.

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.
