Last updated 2/8/2019 at 2:04am

TEMECULA ─ Temecula Council member Matt Rahn, with offered support from Temecula Mayor Mike Naggar, encouraged citizens to donate to local food pantries to assist local federal employees affected by the government shutdown.

Temecula has gathered information to assist federal employees who have not been paid and are in need of food for their families. Temecula’s residents and local nonprofit, service organizations are engaged year-round and committed to helping others.

“Local food banks across the country are seeing an increase in the number of people seeking assistance since the shutdown,” Rahn said. “So long as this is happening, we want to make sure that federal employees and their families do not go hungry. These generous organizations can help families who have never had to seek this type of assistance navigate the immediate alternatives available to them in order to remain healthy and safe.”

The following locations are equipped to assist with food distribution.
