Winter Feast 2018

More than 1,000 volunteers joined us this December to help us prepare and deliver a record-breaking 7,000 Winter Feast meals for people living with HIV, cancer and other life-altering illnesses in the New York City metropolitan area. Every client received a guest meal, so that they could invite a friend to spend the holiday with them. Each client and child on our program also received a gift and a homemade card to help make the holidays special.

On the menu for this year’s Winter Feast: corn chowder, entree, and holiday cookie. Entrees were: braised beef with cherries, salmon with sundried tomato pesto, or a fall vegetable casserole.

Thank you to everyone who these meals possible as we worked together to #CelebrateWithAPlate!

Here’s what it took to make our Winter Feast meal:

  • 3,000 lbs of beef
  • 800 lbs of corn
  • 3,500 lbs of side vegetables
  • 800 gallons of soup
  • 7,200 holiday cookies

We also minced and pureed our Winter Feast meals for clients whose medical conditions require those modifications.

Winter Feast at God’s Love is a huge community effort and we could not do it without our volunteers and supporters. Thank you and happy holidays from all of us at God’s Love!
