God’s Love We Deliver  #FoodIsMedicine #FoodIsLove Cooking and delivering delicious, #medicallytailoredmeals for people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves.

Last week our Director of Nutrition Services, Lisa Zullig, presented at the Family Medicine Education Consortium (FMEC) on our collaboration with SUNY Downstate Family Medicine Residency program. Our presentation, Food is Medicine, was about the program that Lisa developed with our Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Juhy Ali, to train medical residents on how the social determinants of health -- particularly food -- impacts patient health, how to screen for and to access needed food and nutrition resources appropriately. Three groups of residents have spent a day at God's Love through this program which includes a kitchen shift, group lunch tasting our food, and a didactic program. What a joy it is to share #foodismedicine with our community!

"I was familiar with God's Love We Deliver because friends of ours had been volunteering on Thanksgiving for a few years. I love to exercise, but I'd never been a runner at all and knew I would be more prone to actually run if I was training for something, and even more likely to log the miles if I committed to a higher purpose, like a charity race... especially if I told all my friends they had to donate to support me. So I signed up for the #RaceToDeliver, telling myself I couldn't wimp out.

On race morning, I was blown away by what a huge event it was. It was really exciting! There was such a palpable spirit to the event - I was totally hooked.
The next year my husband joined (and by "joined," I mean "completely smoked") me in the race, and our son had a blast in the Kids' Fun Run; his little sister entered the following year. A number of other friends and family have run with us too. We wouldn't miss it! Except for 2011, when we were living in L.A. - and our kids were appalled that we were not all flying back to NY for the Race to Deliver. They look forward to the Race like Christmas; it's a major annual milestone for them.
This period of our life, as working parents with children, doesn't allow much room for volunteer work. I look forward to time when we can be more involved with God's Love. But in the meantime, we want our children to grasp the importance of supporting organizations that take care of people in need, even in some small way, even if you're a kid.

The Race is such a special day. For a family, it's a perfect convergence of wonderful and important things: a crisp autumn outing Central Park; a great incentive to stay in shape; a tangible opportunity to do something that helps people; and a great example of New Yorkers at their best: friends and strangers, young and old, world-class athletes and weekend warriors, exuberant walkers and hard-core fundraisers, united in a spirit of fitness and fun, to support a cause absolutely crucial to our city, and truly, indisputably Divine - God's Love We Deliver." ~ Jenny Sheffer Stevens

"I feel great that someone really and truly cares. I do everything to get that food. The people are first class, and the food is absolutely delicious and nutritious." Charles is a disabled Vietnam War veteran with congestive heart failure and diabetes. Charles has been on our program for about three years. He spends almost all of his time in his apartment, only leaving to go to the VA hospital. He says he'd be lost without the deliveries from God's Love. .

With our program, sick veterans do not need to worry about where or how they will get nutritious, individually tailored meals. Thank you to all of our volunteers and supporters who make our work possible! .

Charles feels your love -- he tells us, "Everybody comes with a big smile and you can feel their heart." .
