Anti-hunger advocates officially cut the ribbon on the new food pantry at Delaware Technical Community College Owens Campus in Georgetown on March 19 because of a donation from the Harry K Foundation.
The food pantry is made possible because of continued financial support from the Harry K Foundation. To date this year, the Harry K Foundation donated more than $107,000 to Food Bank of Delaware anti-hunger programs, including the school pantry and backpack programs. Currently, the foundation sponsors 32 school pantries, including campus pantries at Wesley College, Delaware State University and Delaware Tech.
Through the program, food insecure Delaware Tech students will be able to access emergency food and hygiene products by visiting the food pantry. The new pantry will offer various nutritious food products and hygiene items. Students will select food based on their needs. Food for the pantry will be provided by the Food Bank of Delaware and schoolwide food drives or community donations.
