Food Bank of Delaware and Employees of Chesapeake Utilities Corporation Partner to Give Children and Families a Nutritious Start Back to School
Date:10/9/2017

Chesapeake Utilities Corporation (NYSE: CPK) wrapped up its fifth annual Chesapeake Summer Cares Volunteer Program in August as more than 165 Delmarva employees and family members partnered with the Food Bank of Delaware’s Milford facility and the Maryland Food Bank – Eastern Shore in Salisbury, MD. Employees from the Company’s Chesapeake Utilities, Eastern Shore Natural Gas, Sandpiper Energy and Sharp Energy business units, as well as the corporate office, packed more than 5,300 kid-friendly, nutritious meals to be put into backpacks for children in need and sorted produce and canned goods to keep the shelves fully stocked.

According to Feeding America, the nationwide network of food banks that leads the fight against hunger in the United States, one in six children in Delaware and Maryland struggles with hunger. Summer months spent out of school, where meals are made available for students, are the most vulnerable time for children.

“The work the Food Bank of Delaware and the Maryland Food Bank does year-round to provide meals to families in the region is so important, and we’re honored to be a part of it,” said Michael P. McMasters, President and Chief Executive Officer of Chesapeake Utilities Corporation. “Our employees appreciate the opportunity to connect with the community through partnerships with the Food Bank and other groups. We are committed to giving back to the communities in which we work and live.”

“The Food Bank of Delaware is proud of the strong commitment made by Chesapeake Utilities Corporation,” said Chad Robinson, Milford Branch Director for the Food Bank of Delaware. “They have made a strong corporate commitment to our mission of ending hunger in the State of Delaware. Their employees come to their volunteer experience with a great enthusiasm and all pitch in to get the job done. Chesapeake Utilities Corporation is a model of corporate generosity and we could not be more thankful for their efforts.”
