The Arlington Food Pantry needs your support. Each month it provides food to 500 Arlington residents, of all ages, from all neighborhoods in town.
Over the past few years, pantry organizers have seen the need for food increase significantly, as residents regularly decide between paying for food or paying rent. Arlington now ranks 11th in need for food assistance in Eastern Massachusetts according to the Greater Boston Food Bank.
The Arlington Food Pantry is entirely supported through community donations.
Its goal for 2015 is to continue to provide food to the growing number of residents in need, while increasing the amount and types of food that residents can receive. To meet the growing demand, the pantry plans tol open a satellite location in December at 117 Broadway. The new location will focus on providing mostly fresh and frozen food items and will also increase the amount of food residents receive each month.
