Food crates are being prepared at the Lakewood Community Services Center on Madison Avenue in Lakewood.
The center is offering free food to hundreds of furloughed government workers who live in Lakewood, Rocky River, and Westlake.
“It’s not just a reduction in income to many homes. It is no income. So, it only made sense to extend our services to these thousands of people who have fallen, have hard times through no fault of their own,” said Trish Rooney, director of the center.
The food pantry is open Monday through Friday, 10 to 2 and Wednesday night 5:30 to 7:30.
