                                                                                  MEDIA, Pa. (YC) – Delaware County employees helped unload food collected during the annual Delaware County Thanksgiving Food Drive at the First United Methodist Church in Media on Nov. 17.

This was the 2nd and final food drop-off, concluding the Food Drive which began Oct 2. This year’s collection netted more than 23,511 pounds of food which will be distributed to local food banks throughout the county. Although the Delaware County Thanksgiving Food Drive is over for this season, food donations can be made at any time to the Delaware County Interfaith Food Assistance Network (DIFAN), administered by Family and Community Service.
