THE BRONX - Volunteers from God's Love We Deliver in The Bronx delivered hot meals to hundreds with health issues this holiday season.
God's Love We Deliver provides life-sustaining meals and nutrition counseling for people living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-altering illnesses.
More than 100 volunteers gathered at Mount Saint Vincents College this morning to bag more than 500 diners catered to specific health needs of the recipients.
Each client was given a guest meal so that they could invite a friend or family member to spend the holiday with them. The meals were delivered in a cheerful, hand-decorated bag designed by local school children.
Each household also received an emergency "Blizzard Box" full of nutritious foods to tide them over in the event of a weather-related emergency, as well as holiday gifts to make the season special.
