Dunkin’ Donates $32,000 To The Food Bank of Delaware

On Wednesday, February 17, the Food Bank of Delaware received a $32,000 donation from Dunkin’ of greater Philadelphia to help fight hunger throughout the region. This donation is a combined effort from Dunkin’ of greater Philadelphia’s Roast Hunger program and Dunkin’s Joy in Childhood Foundation. This donation will directly support the food bank’s mission to provide safe and nutritional food to people in need throughout Delaware. The Dunkin’ Community Cruiser will also be on-site handing out free samples of Hot Coffee to volunteers and staff to celebrate the donation.

Since Dunkin’s Roast Hunger program inception in 2011, local Dunkin’ franchisees have been able to impact countless families in need and provide over 4 million meals to local communities. In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Roast Hunger program, Dunkin’ has surpassed a significant fundraising milestone of $2 million donated in total over the last decade by local franchisees to help fight hunger in the greater Philadelphia region.

The Food Bank of Delaware, a member of Feeding America, is a statewide nonprofit agency whose vision is a community free of hunger. The Food Bank of Delaware provides nutritious foods to Delawareans in need and facilitates long-term solutions to the problems of hunger and poverty through community education and advocacy.
