This story has been clarified to better reflect the scale of the food distribution.

The YMCA of Delaware will distribute food at multiple sites across the state Thursday, April 2 and Friday, April 3. There will be a limited amount of boxes available. It is not a large-scale distribution site like previous giveaways hosted by the Food Bank.

On Thursday, community members can pick up boxes of pre-packaged, non-refrigerated, non-perishable food staples at the Central YMCA, Bear-Glasgow YMCA, Western YMCA and Brandywine YMCA. Pick up will be available at the Dover YMCA on Friday only.

Please visit for the most up to date information.
