Many children in our community do not have access to healthy meals in the summer. NDS partners with churches, agencies and other summer programs in providing healthy meals throughout the summer months. NDS partners with hundreds of sites in the five county area each summer.

This spring & summer we have boxed lunch and the choice of a breakfast available. All meals are delivered daily “ready to eat” and no preparation is required. Sites are required to serve approximately 15 children each day and complete daily paperwork.

Due to COVID-19, NDS has made great efforts to provide our communities with resources for those in need of food and meals for children. In addition to our typical summer program meals, we also have meal kits available to serve. These meal kits include 7 breakfasts and 7 lunches with milk. Meals for an entire week to eat at home! Families can pick up meals from your site once per week.

Another great opportunity this year due to COVID-USDA waivers, is that ANY site that would like to offer meal kits or host a camp can participate and serve meals. There are no neighborhood or school district eligibility requirements. Call us today!


NDS is proud to partner with close to 500 sites. Read some of the feedback we have received from summer sites that have worked with us through the years:[/fusion_text]
