COVID-19 Response from God's Love We Deliver

God’s Love We Deliver was designated as an essential provider for New York City. As such, we continue to cook, package, and deliver medically tailored meals to individuals living with severe and chronic illness, and their families, from our SoHo headquarters. We continue to do all we can to adjust to the ever-changing news around the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Because not all of your individuals impacted by COVID-19 ramifications may need our medically tailored meals, we are pleased to share that the City has implemented an expanded home delivery model that many of your members would qualify for due to the closure of senior centers and social adult day programs. Your members or staff can access services through nyc.gov/getfood or by calling 311.

Our Emergency Shelf-Stable Meal Delivery For our Current Clients

God’s Love has been open and delivering as an essential service provider throughout these many months. Throughout that time our clients’ well-being has been front of mind. Early on, we mobilized to deliver an extra week’s worth of shelf-stable meals to our thousands of clients so that they would be nourished if we had to close. We followed this effort with two additional weeks of shelf-stable food.

In total, God’s Love has delivered 210,000 shelf-stable meals to all clients on our program since the start of COVID-19. These meals have been designed by our RDNs and meet all our clients’ dietary requirements.
