GODíS LOVE WE DELIVER MARKS ITS 15 MILLIONTH MEAL

 

-- The milestone coincides with the organization's 29th anniversary --

 

Brooklyn, NY (May 5, 2014) Ė Godís Love We Deliver marked a significant milestone in its history when the organization cooked and delivered its 15 millionth meal on Friday, May 2. Godís Love was joined by many friends Ė old and new Ė including comedian, actress, talk show host, businesswoman and Godís Love Board member Joan Rivers who helped lid and ďkachungaĒ the 15 millionth meal. The milestone coincides with the 29th anniversary of when Godís Love We Deliverís Founder, Ganga Stone, delivered a meal to Richard, a man living with AIDS, and the organization was born.

 

Karen Pearl said, ďThis is another important milestone in the history of Godís Love. We have gone from delivering one meal to one man who was dying from AIDS, to cooking and delivering more than 1.2 million meals each year to thousands of people living with more than 200 different illnesses. As we continue to grow, we stay true to our core principles: we will never have a waiting list, we will never charge clients for their meals, and we will deliver a meal to a new client on the next delivery day. As being sick and hungry is an urgent crisis, we thank all of our volunteers and supporters who have had this 15 millionth meal Ė and every single one of our nutritious, individually tailored meals possible.Ē



 

Joan Rivers said, ďI'm so honored to be a part of God's Love We Deliver and Iím thrilled to know that over the past 29 years we have delivered an astonishing 15 million meals! Congratulations to all, and thank you for making this possible!Ē


 

Approximately 100 staff, volunteers and special guests gathered at Godís Loveís headquarters in Brooklyn to celebrate the occasion, along with former Board co-chairs Michael Sennott and Sylvia Vogelman, Godís Love Board member and best-selling author Linda Fairstein, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and New York City Council Members Corey Johnson  and Robert Cornegy. The group gathered in the kitchen to make the meals, counting down the last 10 as they were prepared. Joan Rivers and Karen Pearl then delivered a meal of pork medallion with orange glaze sauce, sweet potato mash, a vegetable medley and a ďfamousĒ oatmeal raisin cookie made by the organizationís own, Chuck ďThe BakerĒ Piekarski.

 

Joan delivered the 15 millionth meal to an 84 year-old Godís Love client who is living with breast cancer. The two talked, laughed and hugged, as it was a truly moving moment for them both.
