FRIDAY, MAY 30- MONDAY, JUNE 2, 2008 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE cape Qatte : " Corncast packs 600 boxes of food for senior citizens More than 130 volunteers from Comcast and the Food Bank of Delaware gathered May 10, at the Food Bank's Milford facility, for Comcast Cares Day. The day marked Comcast's an- nual, nationwide day of service; volunteers packed 600 boxes with food and supplies to benefit seniors throughout the state. "It was heartwarming to walk out of the warehouse and sud- denly be surrounded with a sea of smiles," said Trevor Turner, Milford volunteer coordinator for the Food Bank of Delaware. "From the outpouring of kind- ness to the children running around happily knowing they were helping others, this day was in every way a pleasure to be a part of. "I am happy to be a part of the beginning of a great partnership between the Food Bank of Delaware and Comcast," said Turner. Annually, the Food Bank of Delaware provides emergency food assistance to approximately 1,500 downstate seniors by utiliz- ing its senior mobile-pantry grant funds. With the declining economy, many senior citizens are strug- gling more than ever to meet even their most basic needs - in- cluding food and hygiene. .The Food Bank of Delaware distributes between 7 and 10 mil- lion pounds of food and grocery products each year to more than 350 member agencies and feed- ing sites throughout the state and also provides thousands of meals a month for children through the After-School Feed- ing Program, the Summer Food Service Program and the Back- pack Program. The Food Bank's hunger relief programs directly provide for al- most 90,000 Delawareans at risk of going without meals each year.
