The Arm in Arm mobile food pantry will be at the YWCA parking lot at 59 Paul Robeson Place on Saturday, March 27 from 10 a.m. to noon for residents who need food. Hunger has dramatically increased in Princeton since the pandemic, with many people losing jobs in restaurants and other area businesses.
Pre-packaged food bags will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Food distribution will take place outside, and masks will be worn by all volunteers, staff, and community members.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Arm In Arm to provide access to essential groceries and combat food insecurity in our community,” said YWCA Princeton CEO Tay Walker.
Representatives from YWCA Princeton’s programs will also be at the event to distribute brochures and other resources offered by the nonprofit.
“Working together with partners in our community for the benefit of our neighbors in-need is an essential component of Arm In Arm’s mission,” said David Fox, the executive director of Arm In Arm. “Especially during these challenging times, these collaborative partnerships are essential.”
