LRAC seeks help for food crisis The Lewes-Rehoboth Association of Churches is asking the community to consider a short-term need at the Cape Henlopen Food Basket. The recent theft of trucks from the Delaware Food Bank will affect the availability of chicken for the Food Basket for the next month. Although the trucks were recovered, the Food Bank is unsure if the chicken can be used. Crystal Timmons of the Milford Food Bank, which directly supplies the Food Basket, anticipates a chicken shortage in the near future. Since the association will probably have to buy from local supermarkets, the costs will go up. The Lewes-Rehoboth Association of Churches would appreciate any financial donations community members can make to help cover this crisis. Donations can be mailed to Cape Henlopen Food Basket, P.O. Box 567, Nassau, DE 19969. All donations are tax exempt.
