God’s Love We Deliver, the New York metropolitan area’s leading provider of life-sustaining meals and nutrition counseling for people living with severe illnesses, provides services throughout all five boroughs of New York City, Westchester and Nassau Counties, and Hudson County, New Jersey. Since 1985, God’s Love has cooked and delivered over 20,000,000 meals—all nutritious, individually tailored, and free of charge. The nonsectarian nonprofit also provides unlimited nutrition counseling. Since its start, God’s Love We Deliver has never had a waiting list.
Providing all of that food and all of those services takes a lot of dedicated volunteers and an awful lot of money. You can help defray GLWD’s costs and give your tummy a rare holiday treat when you order Chuck’s Famous Brownies, created specifically for God’s Love We Deliver. Tell Me More: Chuck’s Famous Brownies contain no preservatives and come in boxes of 4, 8, 12, or 24. How Much: $19–$75.
