Thank you, Lower Manhattan Development Corporation and HUD!
God's Love would like to thank the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, which is which is funded through Community Development Block Grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, for their great support of our Expansion Campaign and the construction of the new Michael Kors Building. They have generously funded our new generators, powering our building, and allowing us to continue and grow our mission, in our new home.
School has started and kids need a lot of things to succeed. Kids need more than pencils and books, and backpacks. They need a nutritious breakfast. Sick parents often struggle to get their kids to school on time. Help us build a better breakfast for hundreds of vulnerable children this school year. Our breakfast kits for kids are designed by our dietitians to help children do their best at school. We help give them the love, energy, and nutrition they need. This year we will build and deliver 3,000 breakfast kits for kids. Will you help?

With generous funding from The M·A·C AIDS Fund, God's Love We Deliver hosted the 2017 Food Is Medicine Coalition National Symposium, September 11-13, at the offices of Hogan Lovell in Washington D.C. The Symposium brought together the Food Is Medicine Coalition (FIMC), a diverse set of food and nutrition services agencies from across the nation, who deliver medically-tailored diets to people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves. Most agencies serve persons living with HIV and other chronic and severe illnesses: cancer, renal failure, Alzheimer's, severe diabetes, and many, many more. For this population: food is medicine.
