Thanks for 1 Million Meals!

2013 is a year of milestones for Food & Friends – in addition to commemorating 25 years of service to the greater DC community, we recently delivered our 1 millionth meal to a client living with breast cancer. We share this benchmark with our friends and partners whose support and commitment to those seriously ill and in need makes these achievements possible.

Since 2001, the Avon Foundation for Women has contributed over $4 million to our Pink Ribbon Delivery Program which provides our home-delivered meals to women, men and their family members living with breast cancer. And with their support this year, the Pink Ribbon Delivery Program will deliver nearly 200,000 meals to more than 500 people living with breast cancer.

Food & Friends’ staff and volunteers regularly participate in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer as walkers and cheerleaders along the 39.3 mile-long route. We shared our millionth meal milestone with the Avon Foundation during this year’s walk when we presented an award to Carol Kurzig, the Foundation’s president. And in appreciation of 12 year partnership and 1 million meals delivered to people living with breast cancer, we share the video below.
