UPDATED March 28: Beats for EATS, an annual fund-raiser for Arlington EATS, held March 25 at Arlington Town Hall, took in nearly $110,000, the nonprofit reported March 28.

The money will go to expand its programming, including at EATS Market at 117 Broadway.

"We can't thank you enough for making this year's Beats for EATS our most successful fund-raising event to date," said an email from the organization, which provides access to fresh local food to help eliminate food insecurity and hunger in Arlington.

The nonprofit's new video, which debuted at the event, describes how important the EATS Market is to food-insecure Arlingtonians. All items at the market are provided at no charge.

Those who wish may still make a donation to help the EATS Market to be able to be open on Saturdays starting April 1, 2023.

 Town Hall celebrationBeats for Eats included  beverages, desserts and hors d’oeuvres provided by Something Savory Catering, live music by Soul City and a silent auction. 

The need is real and continuing. Arlington EATS saw a 29-percent increase in the number of people using its services in 2022 compared to 2021. More local families than before now rely on EATS -- but the nonprofit believes that it can meet the need because of the generosity of neighbors  in Arlington.
