ResideBPG would like to extend a big thank you everyone who participated in our Thanksgiving Food Drive. It is with the kindness and generosity of our residents that we were able to donate 753 pounds of non-perishable items to the Food Bank of Delaware. These contributions are sure to bring a little extra holiday cheer to local families in need this season!
The Food Bank of Delaware relies heavily on local support to provide enough food to serve close to 242,000 Delawareans each year. Their mission is to provide nutritious foods to Delawareans in need and facilitate long-term solutions to the problems of hunger and poverty through community education and advocacy. They achieve this by providing low-cost and no-cost food to qualified feeding programs throughout the greater Delaware region; informing the greater Delaware community about hunger issues and food security; mobilizing support for anti-hunger efforts; training and empowering unemployed individuals to fill needed positions within the food service industry; and developing and implementing statewide nutrition programs to assist low-income families, individuals and children.
