Giant Food donated 1,000 turkeys to the Food Bank of Delaware for the holiday season.
The donation was part of Giant’s contributions to five area Feeding America food banks for a total of 6,000 turkeys to help alleviate hunger across the Mid-Atlantic region. The Capital Area Food Bank, Maryland Food Bank, Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank and Blue Ridge Area Food Bank also each received at least 1,000 turkeys. This annual donation is part of Giant’s overall commitment to supporting local food banks and pantries.
The Food Bank of Delaware distributes millions of pounds of products each year to its network of 509 hunger-relief program partners throughout the state. It also provides thousands of meals a month for children through the backpack program.
The Food Bank of Delaware provides community outreach through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women Infants and Children. Financial literacy coaching through $tand By Me and nutrition education also are offered to empower Delawareans. Delaware Food Works, a workforce development initiative of the Food Bank of Delaware, provides training for adults interested in careers in the food service industry, warehousing, logistics and agriculture.
