The Community Resource Center (CRC), a 501 (c)(3), volunteer-driven organization, was created in 2011 to assist low income individuals and families in times of need. The CRC offers a centralized location where residents in the local community can come when they are facing a crisis. 
Food Rescue Program
Our Food Rescue Program provides food to those who are hungry and helps clients make ends meet by providing rescued food from local grocery stores and restaurants. Last year, we distributed an average of 2,000 bags of food each month.
Baby Pantry
Our Baby Pantry is generously supported by the Harry K Foundation and provides formula and baby food, infant and toddler clothing, and diapers to ensure children thrive. Each baby pantry session, we assist over 50 families accounting for over 100 children.
Day Center
The Day Center program at the Community Resource Center supports the area’s homeless population. The purpose of the Day Center is to provide respite, showers, access to laundry and food to clients experiencing homelessness.
The Food Rescue and Baby Pantry programs are always grateful to receive donated items. When you are at the supermarket, look for BOGO (buy one get one) deals. Donate the extra items to the Community Resource Center! Larger sized diapers are always in demand, as is cereal, peanut butter, and pop-top canned goods that don’t require a can opener.

The Cape Henlopen Food Basket is a non-profit corporation, 501(C) 3, whose sole purpose is to provide food in the Cape Henlopen area to those individuals and families in need.  The CHFB has been in operation since October, 2002.

The Food Bank of Delaware directly distributes emergency food to the public through the Healthy Pantry Center.  
The Food Bank of Delaware’s Backpack Program provides food year-round to children in need for weekends and holidays when school is not in session and federal school meal programs are not available. Backpacks are stocked with kid-friendly, nutritious food including shelf-stable milk and juice, meals such as macaroni and cheese, spaghetti and meatballs and beef stew, granola bars, apple sauce, cereal and more. They are distributed on Fridays or the last day before a holiday or vacation in a discreet manner at schools.
The Food Bank’s Mobile Pantry brings both shelf-stable and fresh foods to low-income Delawareans.  The truck comes filled with non-perishables, fresh produce, dairy, beverages and other refrigerated and frozen items, as well as personal products (when available). The truck visits community access points throughout the state, and volunteers help distribute food to families in need.
The Food Bank of Delaware opened its first school-based food pantry in November 2011.  Through the program at-risk families with children enrolled at the school are able to access emergency food and hygiene products by visiting a food pantry within the school. Families are discretely identified by school officials. Families select food based on their household’s needs each week. Pantries are generously sponsored by the Harry K Foundation.

Milton Community Food Pantry
114 Federal Street
Milton, DE
The Milton Community Food Pantry was established in 2014.  It is comprised entirely of volunteers.  Each week approximately 85 families are served, an average of 285 adults and children.  Our goal is to provide 3 meals a day for 3 days to supplement a family's food.  The MCFP depends entirely on donations. Please help us combat hunger in the Milton Area. Your donations do so much good in alleviating hunger in your neighborhood.
They are looking for food rescue volunteers to do pickups once or twice a month.  It would be superb once a week on the same day but a day or two a month would work.
