Ever since we launched Serious Eats in December of 2006 I've wanted to do a series of posts about some of the wonderful charities that are trying to rectify the fact that many people in our country simply can't afford to eat, seriously or otherwise. Now thanks to the good folks at American Express, Members Project® and Take Part, we've found a partner and sponsor that feels as strongly about the subject as we do. You may have noticed in the last couple of weeks we have profiled such worthy organizations as C-CAP and Yorkville Common Pantry.

Now we're coming at you with videos that tell these stories. These videos gave me an opportunity to volunteer on-camera. In so doing I hope I'm shedding all kinds of new light on these seriously great organizations.

Today you're going to meet the amazing folks at God's Love We Deliver, who deliver 24,000 meals weekly to homebound New Yorkers, and they have been doing this for 25 years. More specifically, I want to introduce everyone to my new 95 year-old friend Natalie. You'll see from watching the video that although Natalie already has a boyfriend, I'm hopeful that she and I can work something out. She's that special.

So take it away, God's Love We Deliver and Natalie.
