The Delaware County Food Bank has been a busy place over the holidays.
Coordinator Doug Robbins says nearly four hundred baskets went out to area families in need during Thanksgiving and again at Christmas.
Donations poured in leading up to the holidays, and a two-thousand dollar grant from the Community Chest helped fund those baskets too.
But he says just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean the need for help has passed. The Food Bank will continue to feed around one hundred local families every month, so donations are especially needed in the new year.
And volunteers are needed too.
If you’re interested in volunteering or donating, you can stop into the Food Bank – they’re open every Monday and Thursday from 11:30 to 2:30 in the basement of Roses in the Snow in downtown Manchester. Or if you want to help financially, you can mail a check to PO Box 467 in Manchester.
The next big project for the Delaware County Food Bank will be a couple hundred food baskets around Easter.
