Bayard attorneys and staff collected a total of 164 pounds of food during a week-long Thanksgiving Food Drive to benefit the Food Bank of Delaware. The food drive took place in advance of the Thanksgiving holiday. Donations of canned goods and non-perishable food items were collected on Friday, November 21 by the Food Bank of Delaware’s Newark facility to be distributed throughout the Delaware Food Bank’s network of Hunger-Relief Program Partners.
The Food Bank distributes millions of pounds of food and grocery products each year through a network of 550 hunger-relief program partners throughout the state and also provides thousands of meals a month for children through the After-School Nutrition Program, the Summer Food Service Program and the Backpack Program. The Food Bank’s hunger-relief programs directly provide for Delawareans at risk of going without meals each year. For more information about the Food Bank of Delaware, visit www.fbd.org.
