Lending a Helping Hand
Last week, I spent a morning volunteering my time to a cause that i feel is very important – God's Love We Deliver.
The God's Love We Deliver program brings nutritious meals and nutrition counseling to New York residents who, because of their illnesses, are not able to cook healthy meals for themselves. They also help moms who are too sick to feed and cook for their children – being a mother myself, that really struck a chord with me.
They deliver over 4,000 meals a day and have delivered over 12 million to date!
I worked in the God's Love We Deliver kitchen with their team of chefs and volunteers. We washed, chopped, sliced and diced vegetables to go into a yummy soup. I was in charge of cutting hundreds of red peppers!
Last year Tim Gunn and I went out into the field and hand delivered meals. This has been a great experience for me and I urge you to research and find a place in your community to help others.
