Food Check-Out Day marks the time of year when Americans will have earned enough disposable income to pay for groceries for a family of four, for the rest of the year. Every year, the Delaware Farm Bureau Women’s Committee purchases groceries from Sam’s Club in Dover and stocks the cupboards at the Ronald McDonald Room in Bayhealth Medical Center. The donation allows families with patients in the NICU at Kent General Hospital to have a snack or quick meal while staying close to their loved ones.
Each year the Delaware Farm Bureau Women’s Committee awards scholarships to students in the agricultural and non-agricultural field. The State committee awards a $2,500 scholarship and each county committee awards a $1,000 scholarship. Application deadline is April 12, 2018.
