Food Safety

Keep Your Food Safe!

Keeping food safe from contamination is an extremely important part of food handling and preparation. Good practices keep everyone healthy, especially people living with serious illness.

Social Service Partners

Many of our clients need other services in addition to home-delivered meals and nutritional counseling, so we work with agencies in New York City and Hudson County, NJ to help coordinate care. If you or your client needs to be referred to case management, home care, nursing services or have medical, housing or addiction treatment needs, we can refer you to an organization near you.

Meet our client, Craig!

Published on May 22, 2018

Craig is 78 years old and lives with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It has been years since he has been able to leave his apartment, and Craig suspects he might not even recognize his own neighborhood now. Before God's Love, Craig was extremely worried about how he would survive on his own. Luckily, he had a friend in Joan Rivers who referred hm to our program. Craig reached out to God's Love and immediately began receiving nutritious, home-delivered meals tailored specifically for him and his diagnosis. Craig expressed his gratitude to God's Love for providing comfort, love, and nutritious meals, and for making his life a little easier: "Please keep going. You help so much."
