Building a home for Arlington EATS

Rendering by Architectural Resources Cambridge
Rendering by Architectural Resources Cambridge

Our Vision

In the fall of 2021, Arlington EATS will move into a newly constructed space at 117 Broadway. For the first time in our thirty-year history, all of our operations will be under one roof, dramatically increasing efficiency. We must raise $1.25 million to realize this vision.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, EATS served more than 1,800 Arlington residents who were facing food insecurity. Our community’s needs have never been greater. Our new home will support our food security work immediately and will give us room to grow — making Arlington a community where no child, family, or senior goes hungry.

Project Features:

2,700 square feet of space

Within walking distance of seven low-income census tracts

A van for home delivery services

2,700 Arlington residents will be served annually

Built for ADA compliance

An environment that creates a dignified shopping experience

A 50% increase in pounds of food distributed weekly

The NEed

This project improves

Access-blue-green

Access to food

EATS will expand Market hours — from three hours a week to at least twelve hours a week. Our school snack program will have centralized operations to more efficiently serve children. A van will allow for continued home deliveries. More neighbors will be able to count on EATS for nutritious food.

Connection-people

Flexibility and connection

The building is designed to be flexible. The large multipurpose room will serve as a classroom for volunteer education, a waiting room for the Market, and an event space. It can be easily adapted to stage emergency responses.

Storage-multi

Storage and food quality

EATS has access to an array of fresh produce, dairy, and protein — but lacks the capacity to store it. We will more than double our refrigerator and freezer capacity and double our storage space for nonperishable goods.

For questions about the EATS Capital Campaign or how to support us, contact Andi Doane, Executive Director at adoane@arlingtoneats.org or 339-707-6757, ext. 1001.

Our goal is to engage the community in eliminating food insecurity and hunger in Arlington. We know it’s possible with neighbors like you. We’ve come a long way together, growing to serve more guests each year, and educating our community about the root causes of food insecurity. Building a home for Arlington EATS puts this goal within reach!

I'm so grateful for Arlington EATS for the food that I receive every week. I couldn't wait for the delivery to arrive on my porch to see what I was getting. The anticipation of what was in the bag made it fun to be creative with meals. The amazing produce was incredible week after week. Thanks so much for what you do for Arlington residents.

No child or family should go hungry in Arlington. Your devotion to families with food insecurity makes a tremendous difference to the entire local community! Whether it is supporting people in constant need or periodic need, they will always have a place to go where they will be served with respect and understanding. Thanks to all of you and may your goal be realized soon during this most unprecedented time of hardship. Please stay healthy and safe! Best, Andrea Gingrande, Director Bright Start Afterschool, Inc.
