Our goal is to help young people realize the dangers of alcohol and drugs so that they and their families never have to experience the pain, tragedy and loneliness that accompany addiction.

The main purpose of the group is to educate and bring awareness of addiction as a disease, rather than the stigma that is suffered in shame by the person with the disease and their loved ones.

About Food Bank of Delaware

The Food Bank of Delaware, a member of Feeding America, formerly America’s Second Harvest, is a statewide nonprofit agency whose vision is a community free of hunger.

We have grown from humble beginnings as an organization who served 50 agencies out of a basement in the Northeast State Social Service Center in Wilmington to a statewide hunger-relief organization with operations in both Newark and Milford. Today we are the only facility in Delaware with the equipment, warehouse and staff to collect donations from all sectors of the food industry and safely and efficiently redistribute them to those who need it most.

While we know that there is a growing need for hunger-relief programs in the state of Delaware, we also recognize the need to think beyond traditional hunger-relief methods and provide programs that give low-income people the skills needed to earn a living wage so that they no longer have to rely on support from agencies like us.
