Creating an impact on the community

DOVER, DE (October 11, 2023)Dover Federal Credit Union (DFCU) is pleased to announce its successful collaboration with the Food Bank of Delaware, which resulted in providing food to over 400 families in need. This remarkable outreach initiative took place on October 9th, during Dover Federal’s Community Impact Day. 

In a powerful demonstration of solidarity and community support, Dover Federal Credit Union teamed up with the Food Bank of Delaware to organize a drive thru mobile pantry at the Dover Mall. The event was open to all members of the community facing food insecurities. 

“Food insecurity is a concern for not only our credit union members but also the communities that we serve. By identifying the enormous need that exist in Kent County, our team members volunteered their time and resources to host a Food Drive made possible with the support from the Food Bank of Delaware. We were humbled that our team could unite and make a small impact on the great work they do, by distributing essential food supplies and presenting a check for $17,500 to help feed our neighbors in need” said Deb Jewell, AVP of Marketing. 

The Food Bank of Delaware played a pivotal role in ensuring that the event ran smoothly by providing a diverse selection of nutritious food items, including fresh produce, non-perishables, and other essential supplies. To get involved or to find the next food distribution event, visit
