Our Services

Supplemental Food

Providing nutritious supplemental food is our main focus. Due to Covid-19, this service is now provided each day via a drive through pantry to families who meet eligibility requirements. In 2020, nearly $8 million worth of food was distributed.

MOBILE 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 anyone without the need for an appointment.

More Information

Grocery Delivery Services
Due to the Covid-19 crisis, Arlington Charities is now delivering food directly to our partner facilities to stay safe.

On the first and third week of every month, the Arlington Charities delivery van provides food for elderly and mobility impaired clients who would normally be unable to visit our pantry.

Our specialized case management team checks in with each client and is sure to take into account any dietary and disability requirements. We are able to provide low sodium, low sugar, and easy to prepare foods.


Hygiene Items & Household Goods

Hygiene items are given daily (as resources allow) and include diapers, soap, shampoo, and dental products. Household goods include blankets, pillows and kitchenware. Also, clients having a baby are given a generous layette, made up of new and gently used clothing and accessories.

Lunch for the Homeless

Lunch is provided to homeless individuals in our area on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. They may also get a change of clothing. Last year, over 7,000 lunches were served.

Satellite Pantry at Tarrant County College

Food insecurity in college students is a pervasive, yet largely ignored problem. At Tarrant County College (TCC) staff and health services heard of kids not eating for over 48 hours or reporting headaches and abdominal pains from lack of food. Arlington Charities sponsors a satellite food pantry  at TCC Southeast Campus that provides easy to prepare meals and snack items perfect for the busy life of a college student.
