Wilmington — Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Wilmington is expanding its hours and locations for emergency food assistance. Added locations include the main, Dover and Georgetown offices. Expanded hours at the Thrift Center, Casa San Francisco and Seton Center now offer food availability every weekday. Casa San Francisco also offers weekend hours. Families in need of emergency food can call to schedule a same-day pick-up at the closest pantry location.
