Food Drives

While there was a time when 99% of the food we give away was purchased from the Food Bank, more and more LCS relies on food drives as a source of food. Each year, scores of churches, organizations, schools, and businesses run food drives for which LCS is the recipient. The ultimate beneficiaries of course are our clients in need of good healthy food. If you are interested in running a food drive, you can download the food drive kit that best serves your needs - Food Drives for Church/School/Workplace or Food Drives for Neighborhoods. Please also contact us at 302 654 8886, ext. 107 or click here to send us an email. The items we most want include:

  • Ravioli, spaghetti, meatballs in sauce
  • Tuna/Chicken/salmon
  • Beef stew
  • Corned beef hash
  • Ham and other canned meats
  • Canned fruit
  • Canned vegetables – spinach, yams, carrots etc.
  • Soup/stew
  • Beans
  • Pasta
  • Crackers
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Cereal, grits, cereal bars, oatmeal
  • Peanut butter
  • Fruit juice
  • Dry or evaporated milk
  • Baking mixes for pancakes, waffles

And in the summer if you like to garden, we would be very interested in fresh vegetables to supplement the nonperishables that we give out to people in need.
