Arlington Food Pantry

The Arlington Food Pantry is open once a week to distribute food to Arlington residents in need. Shoppers must live in Arlington but no other restrictions apply. Shoppers receive dairy products, meat, canned goods, and fresh produce. A typical shopper will leave with 30-60 pounds of food, depending on their household size. We provide 8500 visits annually and serve 1200 unique individuals.
