NEWARK — The Food Bank of Delaware will host more drive-thru mobile pantries during October in each Delaware county for families facing food insecurity.

The Sussex County drive-thru is scheduled for 11 a.m., Oct. 18 at Crossroad Community Church, 20684 State Forest Road, Georgetown. Register in advance online.

The Kent County drive-thru is scheduled for 11 a.m., Oct. 20 at Dover International Speedway, 1131 N. Dupont Highway, register in advance online.

The New Caslte County drive-thru is scheduled for 11 a.m., Oct. 22 at Delaware Tech, 400 Stanton Christiana Road, Newark, register in advance online.

The Food Bank of Delaware requests that participants make sure their trunks or back seats are cleared out so volunteers can load food.

To help speed up the check-in process, registration is requested. Onsite registration will also be available. Service will be first-come, first-served.

Assistance is limited to one per household. Attendees must be present to receive assistance. The Food Bank of Delaware is prepared to serve up to 750 households at each pantry. Recipients must bring proof that they live in Delaware (state-issued ID, utility bill, Delaware SNAP benefits card, etc. can all be used to show proof of residency).

Volunteers are also still needed to assist with the distributions.
