EATS logo

The Arlington Food Pantry/EATS is keeping a close watch on the government shutdown and its impact on funding for food benefits.

A statement posted on the town website says: "We are hopeful the shutdown will end before benefits are impacted and we are prepared if it does not.

"Planning and preparation is underway in the event of increased need in our community. If you are a federal worker experiencing food insecurity due to the shutdown and lost wages, we are here to help."

Contact the Food Pantry/EATS at 339-707-6758.

You are also welcome to present your federal employee ID at the Food Pantry, Wednesdays from 9 to 10:30 a.m. and 5:30 to 7 p.m.
