Our mission is to ease stress, reduce hunger and improve the quality of life for our neighbors in need. The Falmouth Service Center (FSC) works to increase self-sufficiency by helping to build networks among clients, neighbors and agencies.

Falmouth Plastic Bag Ban
As of August 6, 2016, the Town of Falmouth now has a plastic bag ban in place. FSC is complying with this ban as well and no longer will be distributing plastic bags nor taking plastic bags as donations. We encourage everyone to bring reusable bags with them when they pick up their food. We will have brown bags available for the non-perishable groceries.
Clothing & Household Donations
We are currently accepting men's, women's & children's summer clothing only, and small household goods. We are not accepting any winter clothing.
Falmouth Eats Together
Our next Falmouth Eats Together Community Meal is Thursday, September 8th at the John Wesley United Methodist Church located on Gifford St. in Falmouth. We look forward to seeing you then. To see photos of past meals, check our Facebook page. As always, the meals are free and are held from 4 - 6 p.m.
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.
