“148 in the 148th” Food Drive

This spring, the 148th General Assembly participated in the 148 in the 148th food drive, which brought together organizations and donors across the state to raise 148,000 pounds of donations for the Food Bank of Delaware.

Spearheaded by Rep. Lyndon Yearick of Camden, Delaware, and myself, the food drive shattered its goal and brought in more than 173,000 pounds of food items that will be distributed to needy families across Delaware.

Special thanks go out to Delaware Technical Community College for mobilizing the college community to participate, and to the Delaware Food Industry Council, which gathered 75,00 pounds of donations from its local supermarket members.
