Statewide Food Dropoff Sites Help Hungry Families

It takes an entire community to feed Delaware’s hungry. Do you have a few cans or boxes of food in your pantry? If so, we are open Monday-Friday and food donations may be dropped off anytime between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at both our Newark (14 Garfield Way, Newark, DE  19713) and Milford (1040 Mattlind Way, Milford, DE  19963) branches. Can’t get to the Food Bank to drop off a donation? Then stop by one of our statewide dropoff locations! Thanks to the generosity of several Delaware public libraries and businesses, we’ve been able to form partnerships to provide convenient dropoff locations throughout the state.
