The New Haven Register reports that employees furloughed during the government shutdown are invited to volunteer with the kitchen while being furloughed.

The kitchen says it is committed to helping neighbors in need.

The shutdown entered its 20th day Thursday as President Donald Trump and congressional Democrats leave little room for compromise in the standoff over funding for a border wall.
