God's Love We Deliver turned 30 years old on May 1, 2015.
We began with the simple principle that no one should ever have to face the dual crises of illness and hunger. We brought meals to home-bound people living with HIV/AIDS. Today, with your support, we've grown, expanded and reached some amazing milestones:
- Over 8,000 annual volunteers help us each year
- We cook and deliver over 1.3 million meals each year
- This winter, we cooked and delivered our 16 millionth meal
- We now serve clients with over 200 unique diagnoses
So much has changed in our 30 years, but our core values have not. Every day our clients struggle with malnutrition, hunger, illness and isolation. When they contact God's Love, they find a community who cares deeply about them. Together, we are dedicated to cooking and delivering the individually-tailored meals and nutrition counseling our clients require at a time in their lives when they need it most. We do this - free of charge - with dignity, respect and compassion.
For the next twelve months, we'll be doing things - big and small - to celebrate and remember our 30th Anniversary. In May, we will recognize 30 people and organizations who have played an important role in the history of God's Love.
Without the help of our amazing volunteers - 8,000 strong every year - we simply would not be able to cook and deliver over 5,400 delicious and nutritious meals each weekday to our neighbors in need. Outnumbering our staff by a ratio of more than 100 to 1, volunteers work in the kitchen, deliver and package meals, work in our office and help out with special events. Our dedicated volunteers come from all walks of life, building friendships and relationships across shifts. We pride ourselves on the strong sense of community among our volunteers and staff.
For thirty years, because of our volunteers, we can deliver love and hope, all wrapped up in nutritious meals, to our clients.
