I authorize Food for the Hungry (FH) to update the amount of the recurring electronic fund transfers (debits) from my account at the bank or financial institution currently on record and to initiate deposits (credits) for any withdrawals made in error. This authorization to debit or credit my bank account shall be the same as if I had personally signed a check or authorization to FH. This authorization is to remain in full force and effect until FH has received written or verbal notification from me of termination and FH has had a reasonable opportunity to act on it. To cancel service, please call FH at 1-866-307-3259 (toll free).
By making this change, I authorize Food for the Hungry to begin charging this new Credit Card or Bank Account each month until I notify Food for the Hungry otherwise.
