BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA (FOX 35 WOFL) – The effects of the government shut down are being felt at lunch, at dinner, thousands of NASA and space employees are trying to figure out how to put food on the table.

For many, the official letter that shows they’re on furlough, is a way to get some help. The Hummingbird Food Pantry in Titusville is bustling.

Founder Regina Stanford says she’s seeing families whose livelihood is tied to the space sector — they are barely scraping by and they’re in need of basic groceries.

“They are first-time visitors to our pantry,” Stanford said.

Stanford personally served four government employees today. Her volunteers helped others. Friday would normally have been a payday, but 800,000 federal employees didn’t get their checks.
