Beer and Benevolence to benefit the Food Bank of Delaware
March 24, 2016
The community is invited to join the Food Bank of Delaware on Wednesday, April 6 for a night of Beer & Benevolence at Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats in Rehoboth Beach.
The party runs from 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., and the Food Bank of Delaware will receive 10 percent of the pub sales that evening. There is no admission charge, and coupons are not needed. The event is open to the public, and guests purchase their own food and beer. There will be live music, and an opportunity to bid on three raffle baskets throughout the evening.
“We’re looking forward to a great night with our friends from Dogfish Head,” said Food Bank of Delaware President and CEO Patricia Beebe. “We hope that members of our community will come out for an evening of awesome foods and beers, while helping to raise money to help address the critical issue of hunger in our community.”
Proceeds from the evening will help fight hunger in Southern Delaware, where more than 43,000 food insecure Delawareans live. To help address the emergency food needs of Delawareans, the Food Bank of Delaware delivers millions of pounds of food each year through a network of community hunger-relief partners. These partners include food closets, shelters, schools, childcare centers, summer camps, churches and other groups who deliver Food Bank of Delaware programming.
In addition to emergency food services, the Food Bank of Delaware also provides outreach and education through financial coaching, nutrition education, SNAP outreach and more. The organization also plays an important role in training adults for employment in Delaware’s food service industry. The Culinary School at the Food Bank of Delaware, with locations in Milford and Newark, provides 14 weeks of training to adults who are unemployed, underemployed, in career transition or transitioning out of the criminal justice system.
