Vote Food & Friends "Best Place to Volunteer"

Each year, the Washington City Paper holds a Best of DC contest which picks the best restaurants, shops, bars, and much, much more. This year, please help Food & Friends win the great honor of "Best Place to Volunteer."

Volunteers are the heart of Food & Friends. Our services to children and adults in the region facing life-challenging illnesses would not be possible without their help in the kitchen, in our offices and on the road. This past year, more than 12,500 volunteers shared their time and talents with Food & Friends donating a total of 72,480 hours of service. Our delivery volunteers alone drove more than 75,000 miles making sure their neighbors in need had a nutritious meal.

Here are a few messages from the wonderful people who have volunteered with us: 

“We want to thank you for the opportunity to share a portion of our Thanksgiving in DC with your amazing organization. The positive energy and joy that emanates from your headquarters is truly inspiring. The genuine care and concern that your staff extended to us, as volunteers, was appreciated and the organization and flow of logistics, impressive! Please know that if the Flager family are ever in the DC area again, we would be honored to work with Food & Friends!” 

- The Flager Family from Florida 

“Please know that our experience was fulfilling, eye-opening and humbling. The service that your organization provides is critical to our community and you should be commended. We will without a doubt be back in the very near future to assist you again as we recognize the level of need and your reliance on volunteers to keep your work going. Please know that we are quite impressed with your organization and the work it does.”
