God's Love We Deliver is the New York City metropolitan area's leading provider of nutritious, individually-tailored meals to people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves.
Founded in 1985 when one woman began delivering food on her bicycle to a man dying from AIDS, God's Love now cooks 5,800 meals each weekday, delivering them to clients living with life-altering illnesses in all five boroughs of New York City, Westchester and Nassau Counties, and Hudson County, New Jersey. All of our services are provided free of charge to our clients, their children and to the senior caregivers of our senior clients, without regard to income, and we have never maintained a waiting list. Because we believe the combination of hunger and serious illness is a crisis, we deliver food within 24 – 48 hours of first being contacted.
God's Love We Deliver is a non-sectarian organization, providing meals with the strong belief of "food as medicine." To that end, we employ a team of registered dietitians who individually tailor meals to each client's specific medical requirements. God's Love provides all services by employing a small but dedicated professional staff and with the critical assistance of 10,000 volunteers annually.
From dawn to dusk, our amazing volunteers chop and prepare each delicious and nutritious meal in our amazing kitchen.
Now that the food has been prepped and prepared, take a journey with us as we deliver meals from our kitchen to our clients' homes.
Since our humble beginning in one woman's kitchen in 1985, God's Love We Deliver has now served over 12 million meals to people living throughout New York City and New Jersey.
