Food available to federal families
Poverty Resistance Food Pantry, 450 S. Wolcott, issues an open invitation to federal workers and others affected by the shutdown. As the government shutdown continues, volunteers expect to see an increase in families struggling with unexpected income loss. Poverty Resistance is delighted to help federal employees, contractors and others affected by this shutdown. This includes folks who don’t get their food stamps on time, folks whose tax returns are not processed on time and others who may be indirectly affected by the shutdown. Poverty Resistance is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day except Sunday. For more information, PM Mary Ann Budenske on Facebook.
