Working Together to Serve Arlington Residents
Arlington Public Schools offer free and reduced price lunches that feed more than 500 qualifying students on school days. When school is not in session, family food resources are often stretched. Arlington EATS’ mission is to make sure that our students have healthy, nutritious food over the long summer vacation, February and April vacation and over the weekends. Arlington EATS helps our students Eat All Through Summer and the school year!
We are thrilled to announce that as of July 1, Arlington EATS and the Arlington Food Pantry will be merging into one entity to best serve our community and allow for long-term success of both programs. Read more about this exciting news here!
