Your Annual Report is Available

We are proud to share Food & Friends’ 2012 Annual Report.

Our annual report highlights the work that your support made possible. Thanks to you, our critically ill neighbors received good service, healthy and delicious meals, specialized attention and a compassionate support network – all important ingredients in our Recipe for Hope.

Food & Friends 2012 Annual ReportBut remember…we’ve been cooking up this same recipe since our founding in 1988.

This recipe has had a profound impact on the lives of our clients. Last year, with your help and the hard work of more than 14,000 volunteers, we delivered nutritious meals to more than 2,900 ailing neighbors, no longer able to shop or cook for themselves. Today, Food & Friends remains the only home-visiting nutrition service in the DC Metropolitan Region that delivers hope by the meal – specialized, fresh and delicious.

This year, we’re celebrating our 25th Anniversary of caring for the community. While we have seen remarkable changes since our founding, the one constant has been our simple goal of providing nutritious meals to our neighbors fighting illness. Thanks to your unwavering support, we have maintained this tradition that began with our founders.

In 25 years, we’ve delivered more than 16.4 million meals to the doorsteps of 23,400 people – quite an accomplishment for an organization that started in the basement of a church by a small group of dedicated volunteers. We may never know the full impact of our work on the lives of these individuals and their families, but we do know that we were there during one of the most challenging times in their lives, thanks to you.

You are the special ingredient in our Recipe for Hope. Please take a moment to read about what you helped accomplish, remember those we have lost, and applaud yourself for extending a healing hand.

Many lives have been changed because of your compassion for others, and we are honored to be serving on your behalf.
