First State Manufactured Housing Association holds successful food drive Twenty members of First State Manufactured Housing Associa- tion donated more than 500 pounds or 662 non-perishable food and non-food items in their first association-wide food drive. The items were donated to food banks through Sussex County during the county-wide food drive held in conjunction with Caroling on the Circle in George- town. While in the past many mem- bers of FSMHA took part in indi- vidually making charitable contri- butions, this was thefirst time the members joined to feed the hun- gry in Delaware. "We thought we might be able to make a greater impact if we all pulled together. The food drive is just another way our members give back to the community," said Kim Hoey, executive director of the association, on why the drive was started this year. "The really neat thing is that several members still kept their individual efforts up while support!ng the group project."

This pro- gram is designed to provide con- venient locations and times for people to receive nutritious food. Because the food is distributed di- rectly from a Food Bank trailer, there is no need for food storage. Through its grant, Kraft will enable the Food Bank to provide approximately 27,500 pounds of food to hungry people in Kent and Sussex counties. Kraft Foods is the largest branded food and beverage com- pany headquartered in the United States. Kraft markets many of the world's leading food brands, in- cluding Kraft cheese, Maxwell House and Jacobs coffees, Nabis- co cookies and crackers, Philadel- phia cream cheese, Oscar Mayer meats, Post cereals and Milka chocolates, in more than 140 countries. Kraft is a member of the Amer- ica's Second Harvest National Food Bank Network. The need to serve hungry Delawareans has grown dramati- cally since 1997 when the Food Bank of Delaware distributed 3 million pounds of food to the hungry and 10.6 million pounds last year, through our member agencies, to children, seniors and families in Delaware.
