With the upcoming holiday season, Sunday Breakfast Mission is hosting their annual food drive, which runs until the end of the year. They provide food to homeless men, women and children, as well impoverished individuals and families who do not have a secure source of food. Sunday Breakfast Mission has been providing for the homeless, hungry, and hurting in New Castle County for 125 years. The foundation seeks to treat those who are in the most need with dignity.
The goal of the annual food drive is to collect enough food items to provide the community with 120,000 meals. A portion of those meals will be distributed to 1,500 families the week of Thanksgiving and 1,000 individuals will receive Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving Day. The remainder of the food is utilized in providing nightly community meals, and in assembling food boxes to those in need during the year.
Anyone who would like to participate in the food drive is welcome to donate items such as boxed stuffing mix, pasta, and canned vegetables or soups. See below for a full list of possible donations. Just one standard grocery bag of food provides the foundation with enough to give 10 to 15 meals to a family facing food insecurity. Food can be taken to any WSFS branch location in Delaware, as well the Sunday Breakfast Mission located at 110 N Poplar Street, Wilmington, DE 19801. Additional information about the food drive can be found here, and financial donations are welcome here.
