It is well-known that a Lie algebroid $A$ is equivalently described by a degree 1 NQ-manifold $\mathcal{M}$. We study distributions on $\mathcal{M}$, giving a characterization in terms of $A$. We show that involutive $Q$-invariant distributions on $\mathcal{M}$ correspond bijectively to IM-foliations on $A$ (the infinitesimal version of Mackenzie's ideal systems). We perform reduction by such distributions, and investigate how they arise from non-strict actions of strict Lie 2-algebras on $\mathcal{M}$.
