Newark, Delaware – August 4, 2020 – The ACME Foundation’s Nourishing Neighbors initiative has awarded a $10,000 grant to the Delano King Foundation to help sustain its mission in feeding families who are facing food insecurity in Delaware daily – many for the first time, due to the economic and unemployment impact of COVID-19. To date, the Delano King Foundation has distributed food to and other assistance to more than one thousand orphans and families living in impoverished communities in Liberia.
“We are deeply appreciative of this support from ACME Nourishing Neighbors for nourishing our community and standing with us to provide vital food resources to our neighbors throughout New Castles county during this time of COVID-19,” Delano King Foundation President and CEO Delano King. “The gift will support the Delano King Foundation mission in feeding families who are facing food insecurity in Delaware. We believe that even in the darkest times, a brighter future is in the hands of those who give help and hope; and we are extremely grateful for this funding.” Tens of thousands of our New Castle neighbors are facing hunger every day – many for the first time, due to the economic and unemployment impact of COVID-19. We thank Albertsons and Safeway for making us part of the #NourishingNeighbors family!

We provide support for the less fortunate children in form of tuition fees, uniforms, books, and other operational cost. We do not stop there, we also offer empowerment programs for youth.

We hope you can be part of this movement.
We offer scholarships to orphans and less fortunate children. Currently, we are supporting orphans in Liberia.
We ensure less fortunate children and families survive and thrive by providing them access to quality healthcare, nutritional meal, and great education.
Scissors, paper, pencils, and glue sticks seem like a modest expense. But for children whose parents might barely afford food, new school supplies are a luxury.
