Food & Friends’ annual Thanksgiving pie sale and fundraiser, Slice of Life is happening now through November 19!
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.
This year, Food & Friends has partnered with local favorite Whisked bakery to supply the pies. They are available in five delicious flavors: Apple Crumble, Classic Pumpkin, Sweet Potato, Nutty Pecan and a decadent Sea Salt Chocolate Chess. Pie prices start at $28.
Pre-purchased pies can be picked up on Tuesday, November 24 at 35 convenient walk-up, curbside or drive-thru locations throughout the D.C. metro region.
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. With the onset of COVID-19, demand for meals has risen considerably, as the clients served are often immune-compromised and have serious underlying health conditions. Food & Friends’ staff and volunteers expect to deliver more than 1.2 million meals this year.
Place an order at www.foodandfriends.org/pie or call (202) 269-6826 to help Food & Friends bring holiday cheer to those who need it the most.
Pie sales close on Thursday, November 19 and are available at www.foodandfriends.org/pie.
