The Food Bank is concerned about hungry Delawareans all of ages, especially hungry
children. We work to alleviate childhood hunger through our Children’s Nutrition
programs. Research shows that children who eat more nutritious meals are less likely
to miss school, have fewer behavioral problems and perform better in school. We are addressing childhood hunger on all fronts – hunger after school, during the summer and
on the weekends.
