37 million people face hunger in the U.S. today – including more than 11 million children and nearly 5.4 million seniors. Hunger knows no boundaries – it touches every community in the U.S.That means families do not know where their next meal is coming from. People struggle to get by because of underemployment, stagnant wages, and rising costs of living.
Hunger can affect people from all walks of life. Many Americans are one job loss or medical crisis away from food insecurity – but some people, including children and seniors, may be at greater risk of hunger than others.
Our meal program is an onsite sit-down program that provides nutritious, hot meals, and valuable human interaction. This program will provide approximately 200 meals every evening to residents and community members in need of a hot meal. This program will serve the public daily.
Our Mobile Pantry will bring both shelf-stable and fresh foods to low-income Delawareans. Through the program, up to 60 households will have the opportunity to access the pantry each day choosing foods best suited for their family!
