The Food Bank of Delaware announced today $7,000 grant from The Darden Foundation to help provide hunger-relief to Delaware families. Since the start of the COVID-19 crisis, demands for the Food Bank of Delaware’s hunger-relief services have doubled. The funds will be used to provide emergency food to families in need.
“We are thankful for the generosity of the Darden Foundation,” said Food Bank of Delaware Chief Development Officer Larry Haas. “This donation will enable us to provide 21,000 meals to Delawareans in need.”
The Food Bank of Delaware, a member of the Feeding America® network, is one of 192 food banks to receive this funding from The Darden Foundation. It is projected that this grant will enable the Food Bank of Delaware to fund several initiatives, including mobile drive-thru food distributions.
The Darden Foundation is committed to supporting families facing food insecurity in communities across the United States. Their commitment to help is demonstrated through their partnership with Feeding America and their network of 200 food banks across the nation.
Feeding America has worked alongside The Darden Foundation for eight years in the fight to end hunger. Thanks to their ongoing support, the Feeding America network has been able to help provide even more meals to families in need.
