Free Meals For Needy Philly Kids . . .
Children and youth who are impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic can obtain free meals thanks to Nutritional Development Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia (NDS) sponsored feeding sites.
NDS has partnered with 24 sites throughout the region to ensure children have access to nutritious meals at no cost. All breakfast and lunch options provide students with their daily requirement for calories and key growth nutrients. Each site features a “grab and go” delivery system respecting and following all directives and guidelines provided by government and health department officials.
Information on NDS’ feeding sites for children including days, locations, and hours of operation can be found by visiting a dedicated link on the NDS website at http://nutritionaldevelopmentservices.org/covid19/#feedingsites . The page will be updated regularly with information about additional feeding sites as they become available.
For forty-six years, NDS’ mission has been to serve children and those in need with healthy food. NDS accomplishes its mission in two distinct ways: by administering the federally-funded child nutrition programs and through the privately supported Community Food Program.
