September 7, 2023 (New York, NY) – God’s Love We Deliver will host the 16th annual Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One, October 12-15. The two organizations are joining together to make both of their missions come to life: God’s Love is the exclusive charity partner of the Festival, and the organization is in need of volunteers to support both event coordination and culinary happenings.

The Festival is comprised of 80+ events, including tastings, intimate dinners, cooking demos, and more, as well as signature events hosted by Food Network fan favorite personalities and over 500 of today’s top chefs. With a comprehensive volunteer program sponsored by Russell Stover, event support includes helping with setup, registration, guest support, check-in and vendor support. Those with professional culinary experience can volunteer to participate in grilling burgers, prepping ingredients, or mise en place for demonstrations.

“God’s Love We Deliver is thrilled to once again host the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival to raise awareness for the life-sustaining meals and nutrition services we cook and home-deliver to our clients,” said David Ludwigson, God’s Love We Deliver President & CEO. “We have the great honor of working with thousands of dedicated volunteers annually in our kitchen, and we hope all of NYC’s foodies and volunteers join us on October 12-15 as we
celebrate the best of community, culinary excellence, and giving back.”

In line with NYCWFF’s mission to EAT. DRINK. FEED NYC., the Festival raises awareness to support the NYC metropolitan area’s leading provider of medically tailored meals and nutrition counseling for people living with severe illness. As the exclusive charity partner, God’s Love We
Deliver receives the net proceeds from the Festival.

Interested volunteers are encouraged to sign up at All volunteers must be over the age of 21.
