(Newark, DE) – As a guest host for the Governor’s weekly message, filmed at the Food Bank of Delaware, Department of
Health and Social Services Secretary Rita Landgraf highlights a winter-long anti-hunger campaign underway in Delaware.

“In my agency, the Department of Health and Social Services, we serve 156,000 Delawareans who receive Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits,” said Secretary Landgraf. “In November, cuts by Congress reduced our SNAP budget by $16 million. Working with partners like the Food Bank, we are determined to close that gap and make sure that no one goes hungry.”
