EATS will be starting a once-a-month Community Meal for our families: a sit-down meal at Thompson (tablecloths and flowers!) with volunteers serving the food. We’ll have fresh produce, eggs, milk and protein, as well as books, toys and clothes for families to take home. We are super excited and hope you will join us as we plan and execute! If you would like to volunteer, sign up here.
The Community Meal will replace our Weekend Food program as the good folks at the Arlington Food Pantry are moving to an every week distribution model (Wednesdays from 9-10:30 am and 5:30-7 pm at 117 Broadway) and we don’t want to duplicate their hard work.
We’ve loved our Weekend Food program and estimate that we’ve given out over 50,000 pounds of food during our distributions! Thank you to everyone who has helped make it happen, especially our Weekend Food organizer-in-chief, Nicole Melnik! We have one more distribution this Friday so sign up here if you can help. Thanks!
