About the Organization:
God’s Love We Deliver cooks and home-delivers nutritious, medically tailored meals for people too sick to shop or cook for themselves. Founded in 1985 as a response to the AIDS pandemic, God’s Love We Deliver now serves people living with more than 200 different diagnoses. To support the health and well-being of our clients, they provide ongoing nutrition assessment, education, and counseling, and advocate for food and nutrition support. God’s Love is a non-sectarian organization serving individuals living with illness, and their children and caregivers. With a community of more than 15,000 volunteers, they deliver 1.9 million meals annually. All services are free to clients and full of love.
Latest Project:
God’s Love is a leader in advocacy for the integration of food and nutrition services in healthcare. We lead our national provider coalition of medically tailored food and nutrition agencies, the Food Is Medicine Coalition (FIMC). Together, we make the case that “Food is Medicine and Food is Love,” both critical to meeting the national healthcare goals of better health outcomes, lowered costs and increased patient satisfaction.
