A Very Special Delivery

God’s Love We Deliver has a longstanding history of rising to help during times of need both in our community and beyond. In the days following September 11, 2001, God’s Love prepared and delivered more than 3,000 meals for first responders and served as a respite place. In 2005, we sent meals to New Orleans for those affected by Hurricane Katrina. And in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, God’s Love delivered 8,000 meals to people displaced by Sandy and 2,300 emergency meal kits to our clients.

On Wednesday, we continued this tradition by preparing and delivering meals to immigrant children who were separated from their parents and are being temporarily housed in New York. Our chefs prepared food that “tastes like home,” including pupusa de cerdo con curtido (a traditional Guatemalan/El Salvadorian pork stuffed masa with traditional coleslaw) and pepian de pollo con arroz y frijoles (a traditional Guatemalan chicken stew with coconut rice and beans). For dessert, the children enjoyed tres leches and a traditional Guatemalan cookie.

It is an honor to support our community during times of need, and we are proud to have brought a little bit of home – and a lot of love – to these children.
