April 2022 – Prepared Meals Update

We are changing our prepared meal model. Due to the limited number of pre-orders and the increasing costs of food, we will not be taking pre-order meal prep meals. Individual meal prep meals will still be available, and the menu will vary. They can be purchased at the DSA Cafe during our normal business hours Tuesday through Friday 9am-5pm. This gives our chef more flexibility in what he creates for customers!  If you are interested in specific planned weekly meals, please contact us for pricing (cafe@dsadelaware.org). 



Monday: closed

Tuesday: 9 am – 6:30 pm

About the DSA Cafe

The Down Syndrome Association of Delaware (DSA) Cafe and Gift Shop opened in September 2021 and employs adults with Down syndrome in a rotating 16-week internship. The internship provides both prep cook and customer service job training, giving interns the skills and resources to then move on to integrated job opportunities.


Victoria’s Kitchen

In Loving Memory of Victoria Elizabeth Marsh

September 6, 2001 – July 22, 2021

Victoria was the type of person who naturally drew others to herself with her light and joy; she embraced challenges and lived her life to the fullest. Victoria and her family were very active members of the DSADE with her mother, Karen Marsh, serving as Board President for many years. Her father, Rob Marsh, was also an active walk committee member. Victoria was always present at events and loved attending programs such as the Days of Summer Camp, and most of all, cooking classes. Victoria had a strong passion of and love for cooking and food. In her memory, our kitchen will be known as Victoria’s Kitchen. We will cherish her memory as other teen and adults with Down syndrome learn cooking techniques and grow their interest in the culinary arts through this space. Victoria’s spirit will always be remembered. She is greatly missed.
