DuPont is teaming up with the Food Bank of Delaware to put an end to hunger in the state of Delaware.
DuPont has joined the Satell Institute Collective Force as a founding corporate member by making a four-year pledge to the Food Bank of Delaware. The Food Bank of Delaware aims to provide nutritious foods to Delawareans in need and facilitate long-term solutions to the problems of hunger and poverty through community education and advocacy. The Food Bank distributed more than 8 million pounds of food last year alone.
DuPont supports the Food Bank of Delaware with both sponsorship dollars and volunteers. DuPont employees pick apples during the autumn season that then get donated to the Food Bank. Additionally, DuPont employees often volunteer at Food Bank of Delaware distribution centers. Corteva Agriscience, the agricultural division of DowDuPont, also recently donated $400,000 to the Food Bank, driving the establishment of a new four-acre farm that will produce 60,000 pounds of food by the year 2022.
