Arlington EATS: Ways to feed families this holiday

Arlington EATS provided the following ways to help families in its November newsletter:

EATS logo

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.



We are gearing up for Thanksgiving by stocking our shelves with food so that every family can celebrate the holidays with full bellies and fewer worries. In preparation for this year’s #GivingTuesday, we would like to offer supporters a new way to share EATS' mission and support our work.
You can now start your own Facebook fundraiser so your community can provide meals to families this holiday. Your fundraiser can be for any amount; $500 will keep plates full for a family of four for the whole month. Click below to launch one!
 All proceeds benefit Arlington EATS and ensure that families can celebrate the holidays without worrying how they’ll put food on the table.
