Arlington EATS: Ways to feed families this holiday
Arlington EATS provided the following ways to help families in its November newsletter:
The reason behind our focus on expanding and destigmatizing food access is simple; we believe that everyone, no matter their circumstance, should be able to fill their home and stomach with nutritious, fresh food.
The neighbors you support are varied. You help feed hungry teens who receive free lunch at school but whose parents struggle to provide both breakfast and lunch over the summer. The fresh produce your support provides lifts a huge weight off the shoulders of a family who is job hunting while driving Uber and working odd jobs, and who visit our programs not only for food but also to build community relationships during this tough time.
Here's how you can make a difference this holiday:
$1,000 provides meat, dairy, and eggs to a family for a year
$500 buys one month of groceries to a family of four
$250 provides one student snacks for a year
$100 sponsors one day of vacation lunches
$75 provides a week of specialty foods
Thank you for the support, any amount helps feed hungry kids and families for the holidays.
