Real Champions: Lizanne Hagedorn & Erinn Hill
This week, Your Radio Doctor honors Lizanne Hagedorn and Erinn Hill, two women running the Nutritional Development Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. NDS provides free and low-cost meals to the community, largely through school lunch programs. With COVID-19 keeping many homebound, the need for nutritious meals remains more important than ever. During the COVID-19 pandemic, NDS reported a 900% increase in the number of federally funded school meals distributed. In the last few weeks, Hill, Hagerdorn and the team at NDS worked tirelessly to help underserved communities in need of assistance. At meal distribution sites, parents may collect up to three days worth of meals per child in one visit.
Their work allows families to feed their children without worry. Thank you Lizanne and Erinn!
