CHEF Awards $2,000 Grant to Lewes Library and Browseabout Books
CHEF recently awarded $2,000 to the Lewes Library and Browesabout Books for the “Keep Cape Reading” program. With schools, libraries, and book stores closed during the COVID-19 crisis, the Lewes Public Library and Browseabout Books are launching this initiative, which will provide Cape students with free books along with school lunch distribution. Starting April 24th, the community has the opportunity to purchase books through Browseabout Books’ website for distribution to students receiving school meals. Starting May 1, books will be distributed to students at locations where Cape families pick up their school meals. Thank you to both the Lewes Library and Browseabout Books for ensuring that children have access to books during this crisis.

“Thanks to the funding provided by CHEF, all our 5th grade students in the CHSD were able to participate in their first Science Fair. This learning opportunity allowed over 375 students the possibility of exploring and questioning the world around them.”
