Join us for the 26th Annual Race to Deliver.
God’s Love We Deliver provides nutritious meals to people in the New York City metropolitan area who are living with severe illness. For more than 30 years, God’s Love has been there for our New York neighbors so that no one has to fight the dual crises of being sick and hungry.
This year’s 26th annual Race to Deliver is more important than ever! God’s Love now cooks and delivers 1.8 million meals each year to more than 7,200 people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves. So join in the race to help raise awareness for those in need!
