Area food banks prepare to fill coming ‘SNAP gap’ as a result of the 35-day government shutdown

Weeks after the government shutdowns ended, food banks and pantries in Harrisonburg are bracing for a spike in demand this month to respond to what’s called “the S.N.A.P. gap.” This “gap” is another ripple effect from the 35-day federal government shutdown that ended Jan. 26.

As shutdown drags on, Shenandoah National Park keeps portions open. But it’s getting tougher.

While Shenandoah National Park is open to the public, only a few bathrooms are open and no services or help would be available if someone gets hurt or stranded on the mountain. Volunteers and park-related groups are trying to fill in the gaps with clean-ups and paying for portable bathrooms.
