It’s Totally OK to Gobble Up Holiday Pies… for This Amazing Reason

Food & Friends’ annual fundraiser, Slice of Life, has a goal of selling 9,000 Thanksgiving pies this year!  Now in its 12th year, Slice of Life has become a tradition; it’s a simple and delicious way 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.  Those 9,000 pies could provide nearly 30,000 meals for neighbors in need!

“We invite everyone who calls the DC area their home to join us in supporting our neighbors affected by life-challenging diseases,” says Craig Shniderman, Executive Director of Food & Friends.  “By helping sell pies, or simply by purchasing one – 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 the people who need it the most.”

Baguette Republic, a wholesale bakery located in Sterling, Virginia, bakes the 9″ pies in five popular flavors ($28-$45): Homemade Apple, Spiced Pumpkin, Oh So Sweet Potato, Southern Pecan and NEW this year… Salted Caramel Brownie. Pre-purchased pies can be picked up on Tuesday, November 20th at 30 convenient locations throughout the metro region.

Purchase pies directly from Food & Friends — or through corporate or individual pie sellers — now through Thursday, November 15th.
