One of the Arlington City Council’s goals is to provide programs and services to directly support youth and their families, enabling them to reach their highest potential in life in The American Dream City.

A successful community requires a variety of support systems and an environment that enables our residents to flourish and grow. Our public and private educational institutions of all levels provide essential elements of this formula, and the City of Arlington will continue to support their efforts in collaborative ways.

That includes Tarrant Area Food Bank’s new Resources and Education Delivered (R.E.D.) Bus, will provide community resource assistance, nutrition education, and healthy food options to Arlington communities with high levels of food insecurity.

At the heart of this program is an ADA-compliant mobile service delivery unit, the R.E.D. Bus, a specially built vehicle, which provides space for the display and distribution of grocery items and office space for TAFB staff to conduct SNAP enrollment and other community service referrals.
You can learn about the R.E.D. Bus and other great programs available in Arlington in the latest quarterly edition of the Support Youth and Families newsletter.

All quarterly City Council priority newsletters are produced in a digital formal, allowing for layers of additional video content and important links.
