Nutritional Development Services (NDS) of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia celebrated the successful completion of its 2016 Peanut Butter and Jelly Drive in conjunction with archdiocesan schools. Nearly 50,000 pounds of peanut butter and jelly were collected to stock local food cupboards.
On Thursday, Nov. 3 NDS recognized students from St. Aloysius Academy, a private Catholic school for boys in Bryn Mawr, for its participation and continued support of the annual drive and other year-round food collection efforts that include donations to St. John’s Hospice and Mother of Mercy House, Thanksgiving food collection for those in need at St. Cyprian Parish in Philadelphia, and participating in the Walk Against Hunger.
