Free Bach Concert to support the Food Pantry of Falmouth

Support the Food Pantry of Falmouth by joining us for a free concert featuring Lewis Kaplan, Yibin Li and students of The Juilliard School.

In order to properly serve people in need, help must come from different corners of compassion and leadership. Food donations are vital to the Food Pantry of Falmouth. They provide resources that are needed to serve Maine’s most vulnerable.

The Falmouth Food Pantry is located at 271 Falmouth Road, and operates within a section of The Falmouth Town Hall. It serves families from the following communities: Falmouth, Westbrook, Cumberland, Yarmouth and Portland. The Falmouth Food Pantry is most in need of cereals (cold and hot), canned meats and fish (chicken, tuna fish), canned soup (especially low sodium, healthy variations), and plain white rice.

Whether you plan to make a difference solo or as a member of a team, there’s someone who needs you, and many ways for you to serve.
