Help Feed Our Community - Food Drive

Food Drive 2020Delaware is going through a difficult time. With school closures, job disruptions, and health risks, millions of Americans will turn to food banks for much-needed support. They can't do it alone and you can help. Be part of a Greater Community by helping needy families.

Bring your non-perishable donations by one of our offices and help make a difference in the lives of hungry Delawareans during our current health crisis.

We'll have labled boxes outside of our locations for you to share your generosity by giving what you can. All proceeds will go the Food Bank of Delaware and will be dispensed to those in need. Collections will be taken from May 15 - July 15th during our normal business hours.

No one should go hungry - please give today!
