Food Bank of Delaware Will Break Ground With Expansion
MILFORD, Del.- The Food Bank of Delaware has unanimously voted to break ground on a $2.8 million dollar expansion project at its Milford branch.
A mandatory pre-bid meeting for all interested contractors will be held Wednesday, July 18, at the Milford Branch on Mattlind Way. All sealed bids must be received by 2 p.m., Aug. 9.
According to the food bank, almost one of every four Delawareans rely on the food bank. And that number has only increased. The announcement to break ground on a new expansion project, means it is certainly needed
"We know there's increased demands for food in Kent and Sussex counties and the build is really needed to meet the needs of the community," said Kim Kostes, the communications director for the food bank.
The new facility will expand programming, adding a culinary school, more space, and volunteers. Right now, the food bank in Milford can only take cold meals places.
"We'll be able to prepare hot meals for kids in different after school programs once we are up and running," said Kostes.
Construction is set to start in September, and will be done by the end of the year.
