Bringing the kitchens of small businesses to local families in need and to our frontline healthcare professionals! This is a community action made possible by your donations.


Cooking through COVID aims to provide local families in need and local frontline healthcare professionals with a home-cooked meal so that they have one less thing to worry about as they face the battle against the Coronavirus Pandemic. We are inviting everyone in Orange and Sullivan County; Companies and individuals, to donate via the button below.

We're here to help.

The COVID pandemic has placed an unbearable strain on many families and small businesses across the country. We recognize that there are not only families in our community that could use a helping hand, but our local healthcare professionals as well. 


DeFilippis Bakery and Cafe of Monticello has been a staple in Sullivan County for 33 years. In appreciation of the continued support of the community over the years, we have been inspired to take action! Carmela DeFilippis Foglia is partnering with local community non-profit organizations as well as local hospital personnel to identify where we can provide meals. Our goal is to help bring hot meals to families in need and to our overworked healthcare professionals. Over time, we hope to scale our efforts and partner with other small local businesses to help them stay afloat through these trying times. 



If you or someone you know would like to volunteer, partner with us, or are in need of support, please contact us using the button below.



We work with local non-profit organizations to identify families in need of meals during this pandemic.



Our staff works hard to prepare meals while following all current CDC & WHO guidelines. Once the meals are ready, they go out for delivery.



Families in need will get their meals delivered for free. We adhere to the highest privacy standards.
