The Food Bank of Delaware is committed to providing nutritious food to Delawareans and facilitating long-term solutions to the problems of hunger and poverty.  This program will provide a construction tour and discussion of the Food Bank’s new replacement facility in Milford, DE, which is designed to meet their top three priorities: Community Connection, Education, and Access to Resources.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the special requirements inherent in a Warehousing and Cold Storage facility which support a Food Bank's operations, including safe receipt, storage, handling and preparation of food for human consumption.
  • Explore the variety of environments which make up the Food Bank including Office areas, Demonstration Kitchen and Warehouse Training facilities, Warehousing and Distribution center, Volunteer areas and the Food Pantry.
