Free, Delicious, Nutritious Meals For Individuals with a Monkeypox Diagnosis

God’s Love We Deliver is serving individuals with a monkeypox diagnosis. With NYC declaring a state of emergency, our program is needed as much as ever. Anyone isolating because of 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).

After 30 days, clients will be reevaluated for continuation on the program.
We invite clients living with a qualifying diagnosis to ensure they receive nutritious, medically tailored meals that address their health needs.

Program Information

  • Via our streamlined intake process, a client intake specialist will determine the number of meals the client will receive – from 14-21 per week– based on food security status.
  • Children and senior caregivers of clients will also receive meals.
  • Clients will begin receiving meals as soon as the next delivery day.

If you are an existing God’s Love healthcare partner, you’re welcome to authorize your clients who are diagnosed with monkeypox for service or reach out to the healthcare partners team for more information.

If you are referring for yourself or a loved one, please do so via this online form.

All meals from God’s Love are low-sodium, and cooked without added preservatives, artificial flavorings, or fillers. In any given week, each client receives a variety of items that fit their needs and preferences and are optimized for the right caloric, nutrient, and protein content. Because different health concerns require different dietary modifications, our team of Registered Dietitian Nutritionists works with all clients to determine their specific nutritional needs and select the assortment that works for them.
