The Food Bank of Delaware will host drive-thru mobile pantries in each Delaware county beginning next week.

The first event is scheduled for Monday, Feb. 14 starting at 10 a.m. at Crossroad Community Church in Georgetown.

The food bank reminds participants to ensure their trunks or back seats are cleared out so that volunteers are able to load food.

To help speed up the check-in process, participants are asked to pre-register, although on-site registration will also be available.

Service will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis and assistance is limited to one per household. Attendees must be present to receive assistance.

According to the press release, the food bank is prepared to serve up to 1,000 households at each pantry.

Recipients must bring proof that they live in Delaware, such as a state-issued ID, utility bill, Delaware SNAP benefits card or other documentation that demonstrates proof of residency.
