    The Salvation Army of Dallas-Fort Worth is offering free food to furloughed federal workers who aren't getting paid because of the partial government shutdown, a spokesperson said Wednesday.

    The food pantry assistance will last until the shutdown ends and works start to get paid again, according to the Salvation Army.

    "We're here every day of the year to help people who are in need," said Major Jonathan Rich, who leads The Salvation Army DFW."The folks who are affected have never been in this situation before. And so we felt like we needed to just go out there and make sure they knew that they qualify for our services at a time of crisis like this. And we want them to feel very comfortable in contacting us to get help."


    To receive assistance, workers can show their official furlough letter or an employee photo ID.
