Dover Police Operation Gobble Feeds 150 Families 11-24-2020

The Dover Police Department distributed 150 Thanksgiving meals to families during Operation Gobble 2020.  This is the 3rd year that the Dover Police Department has held Operation Gobble.  Thanksgiving meals were distributed door to door in the downtown area by the Dover Police Department and volunteers from Central Delaware Habitat for Humanity, United States Air Force ACE (Airmen Committed to Excellence) Council, and NCALL.   The Capital School district allowed the use of the Central Middle School cafeteria freezer for storage of 150 oven roasters that were donated by Mountaire.  Boxes of unperishable food items were purchased from the Food Bank of Delaware by the Dover Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 15, NCALL, and Central Delaware Habitat for Humanity.  On Monday afternoon, volunteers met at the Central Middle School and put together the 150 packages to be distributed and were escorted by the Dover Police motorcycle unit throughout the downtown area as volunteers went door to door to hand out the food items.
