Mission Statement As an extension of the service and mission of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Philadelphia, Nutritional Development Services provides meals, food assistance and additional support to organizations that serve children or the poor.
NDS is able to accomplish its mission through two separate programs:
Child Nutrition Programs which are federally-funded and provide free, reduced or reasonably priced meals to children at schools, child care centers, after-school programs, summer camps, and other agencies.
Community Food Program is a charitably-funded program that includes food drives and other anti-hunger community service activities.
NDS serves children, families, agencies, and churches regardless of their religious affiliation.
Parishioners are asked to donate food on the third Sunday of each month from September through May. Please leave your contribution in a bag in the Church vestibule.
