Food Bank Dover 5

UPDATE: Wednesday's mobile food pantry in New Castle County has been postponed until August 11, at 11 a.m. due to Tropical Storm Isaias.

Original Story:

The Food Bank of Delaware is hosting drive-thru mobile pantries in all three counties this week for Delawareans impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

On-site registration will also be available. Service will be first-come, first-served. Assistance is limited to one food box per household. The Food Bank of Delaware is prepared to serve up to 1,500 households at each pantry. Recipients must bring proof of ID and Delaware residency.

The Food Bank of Delaware requests that participants make sure their trunks or back seats are cleared out so volunteers can load food with minimal interaction. To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, public restrooms will not be available.

All events start at 11 a.m., but have begun early in the past due to high demand creating traffic concerns.
