As the nation adapts to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and its economic impact, the Food Bank of Delaware is serving more Delawareans than ever.
It is estimated that there are 117,000 Delaware residents who struggle with hunger or are food insecure. Although officials with the Food Bank of Delaware say despite the high demand, the food supply has remained “relatively consistent,” with help from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
“Hunger doesn’t go on vacation.” says Chad Robinson, Community Relations Director with the Food Bank of Delaware. “We know that folks are hurting at this time. We know at many times they don’t have other resources. We were very happy to be able to do that.”
Due to to pandemic, food drives have been put on pause, leading to a lack of individual donations to the Food Bank of Delaware.
Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization provides resources to the Food Bank of Delaware. To donate to Feeding America as part of our Radio Cares Emergency Radiothon visit www.radiocares.org or text FEED to 95819.
