Today is the final day of Food & Friends’ annual Thanksgiving pie sale and fundraiser, Slice of Life.
Each pie purchased through Slice of Life provides one full day of nutritious meals for a Food & Friends client — Washington area neighbors battling cancer, HIV/AIDS, or other serious illnesses.
Pies are available in five delicious flavors: Homemade Apple, Spiced Pumpkin, Oh So Sweet Potato, Nutty Pecan and the American Airlines Sky Pie (Salted Caramel Brownie). Pie prices start at $28 and the American Airlines Sky Pie includes an entry to win 25,000 American Airlines AAdvantage® Miles.
Pre-purchased pies can be picked up on Tuesday, November 26 at 32 convenient locations throughout the D.C. area.
Baguette Republic, a traditional wholesale bakery located in Sterling, Virginia, will bake the pies again this year. All pies are 9″ rounds and packaged in a sturdy, gift-quality box. Purchasers also have the opportunity to donate a pie to a Food & Friends client, to be delivered by volunteers on Thanksgiving Day along with a full turkey dinner.
Community members throughout the area who face remarkable health challenges depend on Food & Friends for their meals, six days a week. Food & Friends’ staff and volunteers will deliver more than one million meals this year. Place an order at www.foodandfriends.org/pie or call (202) 269-6883 to help Food & Friends bring holiday cheer to those who need it the most.
Pie sales close on Thursday, November 21 and are available at www.foodandfriends.org/pie.
