It’s time for one of DC’s most delicious ways to help neighbors in need. Food & Friends’ annual community-based fundraiser, Slice of Life, is underway with the goal of selling 9,000 Thanksgiving pies to provide nearly 30,000 meals around the DC area.

Now in its 14th year, Slice of Life has become a tradition in the Washington region as a simple and delicious way for members of the public to support Food & Friends’ large-scale effort to deliver nutritious meals to those in the community living with serious illnesses. Each pie purchased through Slice of Life provides one full day of meals for a Food & Friends client—adults and children battling cancer, HIV/AIDS, or other critical illnesses. Demand for Food & Friends’ meals is up 20% due to COVID-19.

“This has been a challenging year for all of us. COVID-19 has made living with a serious illness or health condition even more difficult. Simply by purchasing a Thanksgiving pie – something many of us already plan to do this season – you can make the days a little easier and the holidays a little warmer for our neighbors who need it the most,” said Carrie Stoltzfus, Executive Director of Food & Friends. “We are thrilled to have Whole Foods Market as our Exclusive Presenting Sponsor. We invite everyone who calls the D.C. area their home to join us in supporting our neighbors affected by life-challenging illnesses.”

Pies — made by Whisked! — may be purchased directly from Food & Friends or through corporate or individual pie sellers. Visit here to find a directory of pie sellers, to sign up as a seller, or to purchase online. Pie sales close on Thursday, November 19th.

2020 flavors of 9″ round pies include: Apple Crumble, Classic Pumpkin, Sweet Potato, Nutty Pecan, and a Sea Salt Chocolate Chess Pie. Pie prices range from $28-$45, and the Sea Salt Chocolate Chess Pie includes an entry to win $500 in gift cards to a selection of regional restaurants.
