Food is Medicine. Food is Love.

The mission of God’s Love We Deliver is to improve the health and well-being of people living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other serious illnesses by alleviating hunger and malnutrition. We prepare and deliver nutritious, high-quality meals to people who, because of their illness, are unable to provide or prepare meals for themselves. We also provide illness-specific nutrition education and counseling to our clients, families, care providers and other service organizations.

Do Good in Your Neighborhood

Volunteer With Us

Without the help of our volunteers, we simply would not be able to cook and deliver over 11,000 delicious and nutritious meals each weekday to our neighbors in need. Outnumbering our staff by a ratio of more than 60 to 1, volunteers work in the kitchen, deliver meals and work in meal packaging, work in our office and help out with special events.

Doing Good in Your Neighborhood

Our clients live in all five boroughs, parts of New Jersey, and Westchester and Nassau Counties. Perhaps you want to help people living with severe illness on the street where you used to live, where your business is located, or in the neighborhood where you grew up. For just $10 per meal you will be able to provide nutritious, home-delivered meals for God's Love clients living in a neighborhood that is close to your heart.
