Food Access VISTA Summer Associate
Nationalities Service Center (NSC) is a leading provider of comprehensive services for immigrants and refugees in the Philadelphia region. Our mission is to empower immigrants to thrive in our communities and pursue a just future. NSC offers a wide range of expert services including immigration legal representation, health, wellness, and healing support, education and economic empowerment services, and comprehensive services to meet basic needs including food and housing. NSC’s Food Access program provides culturally responsive food staples and basic toiletries to vulnerable newcomers. Food insecurity among immigrants is higher than among native-born residents. Shopping in the on-site food and essentials pantry is part of the holistic services available to clients at NSC, and helps them establish stability in their new home.
