Food Bank of Delaware resuming mobile food pantries in September

DELAWARE – The Food Bank of Delaware will soon start hosting their mobile food pantries again to give families throughout the state as much food as they need to get by.

The group temporarily stopped hosting the mobile food pantries in August but say they’ll bring them back in September.

Chad Robinson, with the Food Bank, says they used their time off from the pantries to regroup and re-strategize to make sure they were serving families as best as they could. Now he says with the pandemic still taking a toll on families across the state, they’re eager to get more food into more hands.

“We know that this time of year, kids get ready to go back to school and all of that, and that also puts stress on the family, it’s just circumstances change, so we’re just happy to be here to supply the resources that we know our community needs,” he said.

Robinson says the food bank will send out lists of dates and locations for the mobile food pantries once they get closer to the dates. To stay up to date and to find out more resources the food bank offers, visit their website.
