Meet our new schools.

As we are about to come to a close of the 2012-13 school year, NDS’ School Meals Program is grateful we had the chance to partner with 6 new schools, including St. Cecilia’s, St. James, St. Francis Cabrini, St. Anthony of Padua Regional Ad Prima Charter School and Queen of Angels Regional School. The new schools are making possible 100,000 additional lunches this school year. For more info about School Meals at your school, call Anne Ayella at NDS at 267-262-8901.
