Mission: God's Love We Deliver's mission is to improve the health and well-being of men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-altering illnesses by alleviating hunger and malnutrition. We prepare and deliver nutritious, high-quality meals to people who, because of their illness, are unable to provide or prepare meals for themselves. We also provide illness-specific nutrition education and counseling to our clients and families, care providers and other service organizations. All of our services are provided free of charge.

Target demographics: feed those who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves because they are living with a severe illness
Direct beneficiaries per year: more than 4,600 individuals living with severe illnesses by providing them with unlimited nutrition counseling and cooking and delivering nutritious meals to them.
Geographic areas served: the NYC metropolitan area
Programs: free, nutritious, individually-tailored meals to those who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves.
GLWD is a phenomenally dedicated organization- never shutting down services, even in Hurricane Sandy. They make a personal touch for their clients- birthday cards and cakes! A warm smile and a hot meal go a long way. Each staff member and volunteer shows New York compassion, generosity and kindness. A staple to the great city's community outreach. Heather
God's Love We Deliver is a wonderful organization, you feel you are apart of their team the moment they greet you at the door. I helped deliver meals, and the clients who met me at the door were so lovely and warm. You know an organization is doing great work when the clients greet you with smiles and hugs. Everyone who is involved in this wonderful organization, understands they are doing amazing work, in a unique way.
God's Love is a well-oiled machine but still super personal. I joined a group of regular volunteers, who, along with the volunteer coordinator, helped me go from vegetable-chopping station to bagel-wrapping station with ease. The camaraderie in the room was nice, and we all felt good knowing this tasty looking food was going straight to appreciative clients.
