Programs and Services
Our services include access to our pantries and participation in any of our FREE seasonal programs for low-income families. To make an appointment to use the pantry, to sign up for any seasonal programs, or to sign up as a one-time or repeating sponsor, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 607 . 437. 9157. If transportation is an obstacle, FHF administrators may be able to pick up donations from your home.
Please note that:
- Some programs are seasonal and sign-ups may not begin until a certain date
- Some free materials are “as available”
- Some programs may require joining a waiting list
Open by appointment. Locations in Auburn and Moravia. Call 607.437.9157 to make an appointment.
Sponsorship: A Sponsor may help by donating nonperishable food items at any time. Doubling up on one or two items in your own grocery cart during each weekly shopping trip is the easiest and fastest way to build a generous stockpile of useful items for FHF each month.

Using cloth diapers in place of disposables can save a family as much as $1,000 per year, per child!
