Islamic Relief USA to Present $10,000 Grant to The Food Bank of Delaware

Newark, Del. – Islamic Relief USA, a nonprofit humanitarian and advocacy organization, will present a $10,000 grant to the Food Bank of Delaware on Thursday, March 4. The two organizations have worked together for many years, focusing on alleviating hunger. The need for such action increases daily, as several recent news reports have shown food insecurity has grown during the coronavirus pandemic.

Specifically, this grant will help support eight mobile pantry programs across the state in areas that are deemed as “cold spots.” The distribution sites will each serve approximately 100 households, each of whom will relieve 100 pounds of food assistance.

In total, 800 households will receive 80,000 pounds of food assistance.

The grant will cover a 12-month period.
