Images shows cans of food. Text says: food drive october 18 - november 8.From October 18 to November 8, 2020, we will be collecting non-perishable food for the Sunday Breakfast Mission’s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. Their goal is to distribute 2,000 food boxes to struggling families in Wilmington. See below for the list of recommended non-perishable foods.

There are several ways you can contribute to the Food Drive: 

  • Drop off food at the Church Lobby from October 18, 2020 to November 8, 2020.
  • Purchase food online and ship directly to the Sunday Breakfast Mission at 110 N Poplar Street, Wilmington, DE 19801 Attn: Food Drive.
  • In addition to Amazon deliveries, at least two other food stores in Wilmington offer online ordering and delivery to the 19801 zip code: ShopRite of Christiana Crossings (501 South Walnut Street, 19801) and ALDI (2205 Farrand Drive, 19808). Check your favorite store to see if they deliver to 19801.
  • Make a financial donation. If giving online, select “Love your Neighbor: SBM Thanksgiving” as the designator. If mailing a check, write on the ENVELOPE Attn: SBM Thanksgiving and make the check payable to BVBC.
