Providing for the health, safety, and welfare of those we serve, as well as our NDS employees, is of utmost important to us.

Outlined below are resources for those in need of food and meals for children at no cost sponsored by Nutritional Development Services (NDS). 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.

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.

Meal sites for children offer a 7 Day Meal Kit box, including breakfast and lunch for a week for each child in your family to be picked up once per week. Daily meal sites offer ready to eat breakfast and lunch for pick up each day of the week. New sites will be added frequently. Families and children may not receive meals from more than one site each week.

Las familias y los niños no pueden recibir comidas de más de un sitio por semana.
