This summer, the Food Bank of Delaware is partnering with Boscov’s department stores all over the state to help families in need. From July 1st – July 31st Boscov’s department stores located in the Dover Mall, Concord Mall and Christiana Towne Center will be hosting a Christmas in July food drive to benefit families and children in need during this upcoming summer season.

This food drive was started to help children in need who do not have access to the meals that they need and would be receiving during the regular school day. This has become a major focus for us here at the Food Bank during the summer months.

Boscov’s will be accepting donations of canned or non-perishable food items, as well as toiletries at the courtesy desks within any of the mentioned Boscov’s locations. Specific items needed include coffee, juice, spaghetti, pasta, rice, macaroni & cheese dinners, instant potatoes, breakfast cereal, peanut butter & jelly, sugar, flour, oil, pancake mix & syrup, laundry and dish detergents, spaghetti sauce, canned fruits vegetables, canned meats such as tuna, ham and chicken, stew and pasta meals, soup, beans, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shaving products, soap, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, paper towels and tissues.

For more information about the food drive, call Sarah Haas, Regional Public Relations Manager at (610) 565-6009 and ask for Public Relations, or email her at
