-Be (Arlington Charities Client)
Providing nutritious supplemental food is our main focus. Since COVID-19, this service is now provided each day via a drive through pantry to families who meet eligibility requirements.
MOBILE FOOD markets
By teaming up with the Tarrant Area Food Bank, Arlington Charities is able to hold large-scale food distributions at different sites three times a month. These are open to all individuals and families without the need for an appointment.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Arlington Charities is now delivering food directly to our partner facilities.
On the first and third week of every month, the Arlington Charities delivery van provides food for seniors and mobility impaired clients who are unable to visit our pantry.
Our case management team checks in with each client and takes into account dietary requirements. We are able to provide low sodium, low sugar, and easy to prepare foods.
