Thank you for supporting the NDS Fresh Produce Initiative! Through your generosity we are humbled to announce that $11,175 has been raised for families in need. This initiative will help children in low-income families across the Archdiocese of Philadelphia receive nourishing fruits & vegetables all summer long.
With the money raised, NDS will set up produce stands at various sites to provide families with fresh fruits and vegetables that they normally would not be able to afford and access. Along with the fresh produce, clients receive vital nutritional information and sample healthy recipes. This gives families an opportunity to learn more about healthy eating habits which promotes a strong immune system and can help kids focus and perform better.
Eating healthy can also reduce tooth decay, chronic health problems like obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, digestive problems, diabetes, and cancer.
Thank you for supporting this initiative!
