Furloughed federal workers who need a helping hand during the government shut down are invited to get food for their families at Springfield Baptist Church on Jan. 22 in Conyers.

Springfield is opening its food pantry on Tuesday, Jan. 22, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., 1875 Iris Drive SE, Conyers.  Church officials said that food has been set aside especially for furloughed federal government employees. Anyone who needs food, however, is welcome.

The partial federal government shutdown, which began on Dec. 22, is the longest in history and is taking its toll on about 800,000 federal employees and their families who don’t know when they will receive their paychecks. The shutdown was triggered by an impasse between President Trump and Congressional Democrats over funding for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump wants $5.7 billion to build the wall. However, Democrats say a wall would be costly, ineffective and immoral, according to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
