The Food Bank of Delaware is a nonprofit agency working to end hunger in Delaware. Each year it distributes millions of pounds of food and fills orders for over 550 hunger-relief partners in Delaware. An estimated 242,000 Delawareans turn to emergency food assistance every year to avoid going hungry and almost half of them are children.

The Food Bank not only collects nonperishable food items, but also other household products, such as laundry detergent, paper products, diapers, personal care items and pet food. We hope to see you at any of the locations during “Stuff The Bus” 2014, but if you can’t join us, please consider helping the Food Bank in other capacities.
