Organizers of a weekly food giveaway expect higher numbers Friday because of the shutdown.
The Faith Temple Church is planning on hundreds of people to come to Friday’s food giveaway.
Organizers are encouraging Federal employees who are furloughed or working without pay and won’t receive a check Friday to come to the Giveaway.
It will take place at the Nordstrom/Johnson building on the North side of the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds.
Doors will open at 3 p.m. Friday and thousands of pounds of food will be dispersed beginning at 4 p.m.
