Providing emergency food free to residents of Delaware's Cape Henlopen School District
Thank you, Cape Community!
The Cape Henlopen Food Basket thanks our very generous Cape Community for over-the-top support for our mission during this current health crisis. The donations over the past two months have been amazing, and many individuals and families have benefitted.

CHFB Board member Clare MacDonald (right) is on hand to accept the donation. On the same day, we received a carload of groceries from the Angola-by-the-Bay “Sea Gals” (right). Shown unloading the donation are Freddie Doughty, from the Community Resource Center, and Joan Caputo and Kathy Fessenbecker from the “Sea Gals”. Thank you!
Thank you, SPI Pharma!
On April 24, 2020, Tracy Nasarenko and Ted Pfarrer, representatives of SPI Pharma in Lewes, delivered two carloads of groceries and other donations to the Cape Henlopen Food Basket. “I think just about every employee of SPI Pharma Lewes participated in some way,” commented Nasarenko. Many thanks to all the SPI Pharma employees for helping to ensure food security for our Cape community!
We Are Open!
The Cape Henlopen Food Basket is continuing to serve clients and accept donations during its regular hours Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10AM-2PM.

Thank You, Solid Ground Church!
On February 7, 2020, Pastors Burt Miller and Josh Bell from the Solid Ground Church in Lewes delivered a van-full of groceries to the Cape Henlopen Food Basket. The parishioners donated the food as part of their Super Bowl Sunday Collection. Yay, Solid Ground Team!
Thank you, Acme and Giant!
The Cape Henlopen Food Basket will receive a $1.00 donation for every Community Give Back bag sold in December at two local supermarkets, Giant Foods and Acme Market. In this picture, Michelle Atkinson, Customer Service manager at Giant Foods, is in the holiday spirit and is ready to sell bags
Thank you, Safeway Supermarket!
Safeway Supermarket at 19283 Coastal Highway in Rehoboth Beach is helping to feed local families in need during the holidays. Through its annual Holiday Bucks campaign, Safeway gives its customers the opportunity to donate funds at the stores’ cash registers. The money collected is used to purchase food to be donated to area food banks. Store Director Tom Adkins and Assistant Store Director Wilson Vasqueztell donated the first two pallets from the program to the Cape Henlopen Food Basket (CHFB) on November 23. “There will be more,” Adkins said. “We’ll continue this through January 1. We thank our generous customers for their support.” Pictured with this first donation are (left to right): CHFB volunteers Richard Camp, Mark Sievers, Bill Kenyon, Jon DeVoll (CHFB board president), Chet Sprague, Safeway Store Director Tom Adkins, and Safeway Assistant Store Director Wilson Vasqueztell.
