We look forward to another successful evening of increasing awareness of the issue of hunger in Delaware and raising money to help alleviate it.” 

“We are thrilled to once again partner with the Food Bank of Delaware for the Evening in the Garden event,” said CANR Dean Mark Rieger. “We are very proud of the partnerships we have grown throughout the years with the Food Bank of Delaware and the Evening in the Garden is no exception.
