In response to the overwhelming number of requests and the continued evolving coronavirus state of emergency, SHARE Village Las Vegas (formerly known as Veterans Village Las Vegas) announced today that its pantry services will expand to 7 days a week and will continue without interruption until further notice.
Located at 50 N. 21st, Las Vegas NV, 89101, individuals in need of food assistance can visit the SHARE Village Las Vegas Pantry seven days a week from 10 a.m. to noon.
“The extensive number of layoffs and furloughs of our gaming and hospitality industry workers has presented a much greater need than anticipated in Las Vegas,” said SHARE Village Las Vegas Founder Arnold Stalk. “We have seen a 500% increase in food and nutrition requests in the past week. We are here to serve the Las Vegas community in any way we can. That includes services for Veteran and seniors as needed.”
SHARE Village’s food rescue program will continue without interruption as well. Its innovative food rescue program allows SHARE Village Las Vegas to collect food rescue items utilizing its fleet of emergency food service trucks each night, including nightly pick-ups from participating Starbucks locations, hotel/casino partners and grocers in Las Vegas.
SHARE Village Las Vegas is the only non-profit charitable organization in Las Vegas to offer 24/7/365 emergency and crisis intervention services. For additional information regarding SHARE Village Las Vegas and its services, please visit www.sharelasvegas.org.
