SoDel Concepts' foundation, SoDel Cares, recently donated $2,500 to the Cape Henlopen Food Basket. Located on Oyster House Road in Rehoboth Beach, the nonprofit is an emergency food service that provides assistance to those living in the Cape Henlopen School District.
"We're impressed with the job that Cape Henlopen Food Basket is doing to help local residents who are struggling to make ends meet," said Scott Kammerer, president of SoDel Concepts, which owns nine restaurants, Plate Catering and the food truck Big Thunder Roadside Kitchen. "They give people the assistance they need to get back on track."
CHFB provides a 10-day supply of canned and frozen food, as well as supermarket vouchers for fresh milk, eggs, margarine and bread. "We are so thankful to receive a donation from SoDel Cares, along with other associations, because it helps us meet our goal of $60,000, which we use to feed families and individuals," said John Devol, president of CHFB.
In 2016, CHFB served 2,397 households (6,691 people). In January 2017 alone, the organization assisted 162 households (443 people).
