With the ongoing partial shutdown of the Federal Government, some federal employees
are working without pay or have been furloughed until further notice.  We would like to share information on resources available to federal employees of the state and local resources available to help during the ongoing partial government shutdown.  The City of Norwalk posted this press release on the resources available, including how we are able to help families at Person-to-Person.  We are waiving income guidelines for our food pantry for federal employees affected by the shutdown. Those in need can access the food pantry to receive seven days of food for the size of the family, covering three meals per day, by showing their federal employee ID card. Clothing and financial assistance are also available.

For more information please call P2P at call (203) 655-0048, send a message to [email protected] or send a private message on Facebook at p2phelps.

Residents can also call 2-1-1 to be connected with more local services and resources.

The attached press release from the City of Norwalk provides more information.
