From the Heart!

During these tough times, you can help offer a meal to those in need while keeping Newark restaurants open for business. Click the DONATE button to make a $10, $50, or $100 donation, or any other denomination you choose. The NDD will coordinate with local restaurants to prepare food and NDD Ambassadors will deliver to shelters or senior homes.

All meals requests will be met on a first-come, first-served basis. The NDD will supply meals as part of the “From the Heart” program as long as funding is available.

Donations are tax-deductible so be sure to keep your receipt.
