Food For Philly Kids In Need During COVID Crisis
Nutritional Development Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia is currently sponsoring feeding sites throughout the region to ensure that children and youth ages 18 years or younger continue to have access to wholesome nourishing meals.
Children and youth who are in need of healthy and nutritious meals are receiving ongoing assistance in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic thanks to Nutritional Development Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia (NDS) and Saint Hubert Catholic High School for Girls, one of 17 Archdiocesan High Schools throughout the five-county region.
Saint Hubert Catholic High School for Girls, located in the Tacony section of Philadelphia, is an NDS sponsored feeding site for children in need of nutritious sustenance. Families can collect up to three days’ worth of meals plus milk (three breakfasts and three lunches) per child, per visit. Children do not have to be present to receive a meal. Saint Hubert’s will have 300 lunches and 300 breakfasts on hand which will enable them to feed 100 children and youth 18 years or younger.

Throughout the region, NDS has partnered with more than 50 sites to ensure children have access to nutritious meals at no cost. All breakfast and lunch options provide children 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. Funding for these meals is from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
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 nutritionaldevelopmentservices.org/covid19/#feedingsites. The page will be updated regularly with information and additional feeding sites as they become available.
