Kraft Heinz Food Company is the latest to step up and help furloughed federal workers during the partial government shutdown. Head to the D.C. pop-up Kraft grocery store to get a FREE bag of groceries, on them.

From the folks who bring us everyone's favorite blue box, here's a little bit of help during the partial federal government shutdown.

It's simple; show up with your federal government I.D. badge and walk out with a bag of Kraft groceries, including macaroni and cheese, Kraft natural cheeses, various condiments, and other Kraft Heinz products. The only caveat is that you may be asked if you would like your picture posted in posts about the "Kraft Now. Pay Later." program.

WHEN: January 16-20, 2019 | Jan. 16 -- 10 a.m.-6 p.m. | Jan. 17-20 -- 8 a.m.-6 p.m. (while supplies last)
WHERE: 1287 4th Street NE in Washington, D.C.

Who is eligible?

The Kraft Now. Pay Later. program is open to all current federal government employees with valid federal government ID badges in the D.C. area. You must be able to provide your federal ID badge for proof of employment to enter the pop-up and participate in the program. The Pay Later part refers to the concept of paying this forward once you're able to do so.

What will you receive?

One bag of groceries comprised of Kraft Heinz Foods Compay products including all of your favorite Kraft products like macaroni and cheese, fresh cheese, condiments, and more. There's a limit of one bag per family. No purchase is necessary to participate in this program.

It is important to remember that this pop-up will run on a first come-first served basis. The store may close early once supplies run out.
