Local Business Offering Free Meals to Federal Employees Impacted by Gov't Shutdown
HARLINGEN – A local business is offering free meals to federal workers impacted by the government shutdown.
Co-owner of Stefano’s Brooklyn Pizza, Allen Eddik, says they are offering active federal employees one free meal per day.
“I think that's a very nice gesture of them to do that, especially right now that we don't know if we're going to get paid or not,” says a local federal employee.
Eddik says the free offer is on the table until further notice.
Federal employees will need to bring proof of government employment.
