Our History

Our HistorySince 1983, FSC, a 501 (c ) (3) non-profit, has worked hand in hand with the community to educate, support, and improve the quality of life of Upper Cape residents in need. Individuals, schools, organizations, and the faith community contribute not only financial donations but also food, clothing, and other necessary goods to the Falmouth Service Center. 

We recognize the needs are as diverse as our clients. Our multi-service agency therefore covers a wide range. A major component of the program is an extensive food pantry that residents/clients may visit once every two weeks as needed. In addition, financial assistance, in conjunction with budget management workshops, is available to clients who need housing assistance and/or help paying utilities.

Every year our services find us growing with the needs of our community. The Gifford Street location hosts a popular community garden. Community gardeners (clients, affordable housing residents, and community members) sow and reap fresh produce to feed themselves, Service Center clients, and the greater community.

Additionally, the Falmouth Service Center offers the community several programs offering nutritional education in cooperation with the Barnstable County Extension including Foods to Encourage and FRESH Market.

With more than 400 enthusiastic volunteers, the Gifford Street campus is truly a place where people can come if they need help or if they wish to be of help.
