A Message from Chef's Best Presenting Sponsor Walmart

Dear Food & Friends Supporters:

It is with great enthusiasm that Walmart serves as the Presenting Sponsor for Food & Friends’ 24th Annual Chef’s Best Dinner & Auction. Our partnership with Food & Friends started nearly a decade ago and continues to grow as a result of their commitment and proven impact on individuals suffering from HIV/AIDS, cancer, diabetes, and other life-challenging illnesses.

Since its inception, Food & Friends has delivered a staggering 17 million fresh meals to over 25,000 clients throughout the greater Washington area. Annually, they serve 3,000 individuals and their families with healthy food and nutrition counseling. We encourage you to join the community of supporters who enables Food & Friends to deliver fresh meals, groceries, and hope to our neighbors who need it most.

Every day, across the country, people are struggling to put food on their tables. Walmart is in a unique position to make a major impact. In 2010, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation launched "Fighting Hunger Together," a $2 billion cash and in-kind commitment to fight hunger in America. This initiative leverages Walmart's reach and resources to alleviate and elevate the issues of hunger and healthy eating at a national level.

As a community partner, Walmart is proud to create and sustain partnerships with organizations that go above and beyond to meet the community’s needs. In the words of Sam Walton, “We’re all working together; that’s the secret.”

Thank you so much for coming and have a wonderful evening!

Nina Albert
Director of Community Affairs, Walmart
