Food Bank of Del. Schedules More Mobile Pantries, Starting Mon. May 16th In Sussex Co.
As food costs and gas prices continue to soar, another series of mobile food pantries will get underway next week.
The Food Bank of Delaware has been holding monthly drive-through pantries in each county since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic more than two years ago.
Food will be available Monday at Crossroad Community Church on State Forest Road between Georgetown and Bridgeville, starting at 10 a.m. Online registration to speed up the check-in process is already open. On-site registration will also be available.
Guests are asked to clear space in the trunk or back seat so volunteers can load food. Proof of Delaware residency will be required.
Additional mobile food pantries will take place next Wednesday May 18th at Dover International Speedway and the following Friday in New Castle County.
