The 2021 Sunday Breakfast Mission‘s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive is happening! Their goal is to distribute 2,000 food boxes to struggling families in Wilmington.

FOOD COLLECTION:

There are three ways you can contribute to the food drive:

  • Drop off food in the church Lobby from Thursday, October 21 through Sunday, November 7.
  • 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.

See the list of recommended non-perishable food.
