God’s Love We Deliver is Serving Individuals Isolating with a Monkeypox Diagnosis

Since 1985, God’s Love We Deliver has responded to the dual crises of hunger and severe illness by cooking and home delivering delicious, medically tailored meals to vulnerable individuals at a time in their lives when they’ve needed us most. Our organization has always answered the call to meet the changing and ongoing needs of our clients and the community.

In our nearly 40-year history we have a long legacy of responding to emergencies – from our start at the height of the AIDS pandemic, to COVID-19, to today, with the monkeypox outbreak.

This week, Mayor Adams announced a state of emergency in NYC regarding monkeypox, and yesterday, the Biden administration declared the illness a public health emergency for the country. God’s Love We Deliver is currently supporting individuals with a diagnosis of monkeypox.

Anyone in the NYC metropolitan area isolating with a monkeypox diagnosis is eligible to receive our nutritious, home-delivered meals for a 30-day period. Clients do NOT need to meet our standard eligibility requirements (our standard requirements include needing to be diagnosed with a severe and/or chronic illness and being physically limited in shopping and cooking).

 

Here’s how it works:

  • Apply for services via our online intake form.
  • Clients will receive meals as soon as the next delivery day.
  • Clients are eligible for 14-21 meals per week depending on their food insecurity need.
  • God’s Love will also serve the client’s children and senior caregivers.
  • After 30 days, clients will be reevaluated for continuation on the program.

Note, we will invite new clients who also meet our standard eligibility requirements to remain on program to ensure they receive nutritious, medically tailored meals that address their health needs.

Please share these details with family and friends, and please share our posts on social media: Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

God’s Love We Deliver will continue to meet the changing and ongoing needs of our clients and the community to ensure that all those who need our medically tailored meals can benefit from the nutrition and love that we deliver.
