SARASOTA, Fl (WWSB) - All Faiths Food Bank mobilizes to Serve Community During Government Shutdown in Sarasota County.

A long-term shutdown will have an impact on federal safety net food programs such as school breakfast and lunch, WIC, federal commodities and SNAP.

“The food bank trucks arrive at the location and set up tables to give out food. We want citizens to know the program is still here to help people affected by the shutdown,” said Elodie McCartney Ward Communications Manager of all Faiths Food Bank.

According to All Faith Food Bank, the continued federal closure could result in a significantly increased demand for food. All Faiths Food Bank is preparing to respond and is confident the community will rally to support.
