The Food Bank of Delaware is a nonprofit agency committed to ending hunger in Delaware.  According to the Food Bank, over 121,800 Delawareans, including more than 38,600 children, are food insecure and due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s anticipated an additional 50,000 Delawareans will struggle with hunger.
