In consultation with Arlington’s Board of Health, we have developed guidelines that allow us to safely reopen to accept food donations.
A donation table will be set up near the office door on Lombard Road.
When making donations, please wear a mask and maintain a distance of at least six feet from other donors at all times. Please drop off items only during donation hours, when the table is out.
Any shelf-stable, unexpired food is acceptable but these items are the most needed right now:
- Cereal (especially Cheerios!)
- Canned diced tomatoes
- Shelf stable soup
- Peanut butter alternatives
- Snacks (regular sizes, please)
- Soy Sauce
- Shelf Stable Soy Milk or Almond Milk
- Brown Paper Bags
- Incontinence products
Arlington EATS typically relies on community donations of food for about 30% of our food supply. Thank you!
