Volunteering with God's Love We Deliver

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with God’s Love We Deliver!

Without the help of our amazing volunteers – thousands every year – we simply would not be able to cook and deliver over 15,000 medically tailored meals each weekday.  Our volunteers work in the kitchen, deliver and package meals, work in our office and help out with special events to help us achieve our life-saving mission.

If you are not feeling well or have any concerns about volunteering, DO NOT VOLUNTEER NOW.

From the very beginning, we recognized the force of the tremendous heart of our volunteers.

At God’s Love We Deliver, we are committed to maintaining the highest possible standard of food safety for our clients living with severe illness. It’s important to our staff, our volunteers, and our clients to know that every single one of the thousands of meals produced in our kitchen each year has been prepared with a commitment to quality, nutrition and love.
