Every summer, people across New England flock to Cape Cod for fun in the sun. But for many people who live there year-round, putting food on the table isn’t always easy.
Roughly 1 in 12 people on Cape Cod is food insecure, meaning he or she doesn’t consistently know where their next meal is coming from.
Last year, The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) distributed more than 4 million pounds of healthy food to our nearly 40 partner agencies on the Cape. Over 860,000 pounds of that total went to the town of Falmouth.
“For several decades Falmouth Service Center has relied on The Greater Boston Food Bank as a major partner in our fight to end food insecurity here on the Upper Cape,”
~ Brenda Swain, executive director of the Falmouth Service Center.
One of GBFB’s largest agencies on Cape Cod, the Falmouth Service Center serves over 3,300 clients every month. Clients like Joe, husband and father, that found himself in need of help and turned to the Falmouth Service Center in his time of need.
Your generous support provides hunger relief in Falmouth and every other one of the 190 cities and towns GBFB serves.
