Food Bank of Delaware
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 35 million Americans were food insecure before the pandemic, a number that may rise to 50 million by the end of 2020, says Zuani Villarreal of Feeding America, a nonprofit that supplies food banks. Families and communities across our region are in need of assistance, so a donation to the Food Bank is a great way to help out. Food banks can purchase products economically with their relationships with growers and manufactures, making every dollar stretch as far as possible.
