Nutritional Development Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia (NDS) has created a Coronavirus (COVID-19) information page as a resource to help navigate these uncertain times.  Providing for the health, safety, and welfare of those we serve, as well as our NDS employees, is utmost important to us.

Outlined below are resources for those in need of emergency food and meals for children. NDS is continuing to support our network of food cupboards throughout the region and doubling efforts to supply Catholic Social Services (CSS) Family Service Centers with non-perishable items for those impacted by COVID-19.

CSS Family Service Centers are the first point of contact for individuals, families, and parishes when they seek assistance from CSS. Seven such centers are located throughout the five-county metropolitan area.

If you are interested in supporting the cupboards, NDS is sponsoring an on-line Lenten “One- Can Meal” Food Drive” to help keep the shelves stocked during this time.  Please visit You Give Goods at https://yougivegoods.com/lentendrive2020

Below you will also find information from the Federal Government and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Communication from the Archdiocesan of Philadelphia and additional resources which may be helpful during this time are also provided.

Throughout these uncertain times, let us continue to embrace the call to be servant leaders within our community to help those most in need. Please be assured of our continued prayers for all of those affected by this virus and for you and your families during this Lenten season.
