St. Stephen's partners with Lutheran Community Services to distribute food. The LCS Food Pantry is the largest volume Lutheran food pantry in the state of Delaware. It provides three days of emergency food provisions for 800-1,000 families each month, 2,500-3,000 people.
Approximately 200 volunteers staff the pantry, stock the shelves, pack bags for distribution, accept deliveries and clean the facilities. Volunteers come from local churches, the community, schools, autism support programs, and community service programs.
The food pantry is closed on major holidays. The pantry is also closed when the public schools close due to inclement weather.
Food donations and volunteers are always welcome. We also need baby food, baby wipes, and size 6 diapers. Thank you for your generosity!

ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
