PROJECT ANGEL FOOD CELEBRATES 25 YEARS

Dear Friends,

Shortly  after I started lecturing on A Course in Miracles in Los Angeles in1983, the AIDS crisis emerged full-blown. And Los Angeles was hit hard. It took a while for the medical community as well as organized religious institutions to be able to provide much comfort, and at that time a diagnosis of HIV meant almost certain death. It was a devastating period  for everyone whose life was affected.

Many gay men came to my lectures at that time, eager to hear of a God who loved them no matter what… to learn about miracles… to join with others in working those miracles as they walked through a very dark valley in their lives. And out of our community arose not only prayers, but also action. One of those actions was the formation of Project Angel Food, a meals-on-wheels program to deliver nutritious food to those who are homebound. We did not just deliver food; we delivered food that was laced with love.

It has now been 25 years since Project Angel Food started, and having served 9 million meals already it continues its extraordinary legacy. Project Angel Food now serves 1,200 meals a day to people for whom this is often the only meal they will eat all day, while they themselves are going through life challenging illness and its accompanying hardships. I could not be prouder of how the organization has moved through time, guided lovingly year after year by those who have felt the call to continue its mission.

I’m very moved that at this year’s Angel Awards, Project Angel Food has chosen to celebrate its 25th anniversary by honoring me and others on our founding team. I hope you will join me in making this a magnificent celebration of what’s possible, contributing in whatever way you can to an organization that was born in love, and continues to extend  love,  in a way that touches individual lives every single day. It would mean the world to the organization, and it would mean the world to me.

I hope to see you there.

Many thanks and much love,
Marianne
