Families in Chester, Pennsylvania received healthy, hearty meals in time for Christmas 2020, thanks to Nutritional Development Services (NDS) of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

For close to five decades, NDS has delivered millions of breakfasts and lunches to area children through the federally funded school meal programs, while stocking a large network of food cupboards. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the agency has been a lifeline for children, families, and individuals in the five-county Philadelphia region.
