Officials at Tampa International Airport want to help hundreds of federal employees working through the shutdown.
The airport says it has teamed up with United Way Suncoast to begin a food bank.
The airport has about 700 federal airport employees.
The food bank will open on Monday to workers with the TSA, Customs and Border Protection and the Federal Aviation Administration.
All three agencies require employees to continue working without a paycheck.
Workers at the airport’s police training facility will also have access to the food bank.
Tampa International is also providing lunch for airport employees on Monday and Tuesday.
The airport says it is also seeing what it can do to get workers free bus passes due to the shutdown and help with their electric and gas bills.
