In 2015, NDS received 50,000 pounds of food from Goya Foods in honor of Pope Francis’ visit to the United States as part of the Goya Gives Campaign. NDS offers food and technical assistance to local organizations that serve adults, children, and families in need through food cupboards, soup kitchens, and shelters in the Philadelphia region.

The food donation is in honor of the first Philadelphia International Unity Cup, a soccer tournament that celebrates the rich cultural diversity of the “City of Brotherly Love.” Goya Foods, a staple brand in Latino households, sponsored the 32-team World Cup-style soccer tournament which concluded Saturday, November 5th following a championship game at Citizen’s Bank Park.
