Nutritional Development Services

 

Last year, over 700K people across Philadelphia were direct recipients of food. Due to generosity of supporters like you, nearly 2 million meal equivalents were provided.

Giving Hope to DeAndra

I have lived in Chester my whole life. I started visiting the Coffee Club at the Catholic Social Services Delaware County Family Service Center years ago. Recently, I began volunteering here in the Coffee Club and in Martha’s Choice Marketplace.

Nutritional Development Services provides the essential food items for the food pantry here. We serve up to 400 people a month, which is amazing! The marketplace provides a sense of dignity for our clients – they get to do their own shopping, and no one leaves empty handed. We take care of every person who walks through our front door.

There are a lot of people here in Chester who are homeless and others who are not feeling so well. At the end of the day, we just try to help them feel better. They are grateful and happy, and they thank us every time. The community depends on us; they know when they visit here that they will get the help and assistance they need.

I think people should support the Catholic Charities Appeal because there is no other place that helps and strengthens the community like they do.
