Each year, the Washington City Paper holds it's "Best of DC Readers' Poll" 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 10,000 volunteers shared their time and talents with Food & Friends donating more than 100,000 hours of service.
Polls close at midnight on March 1st. Some of our current volunteers tell you below why we deserve this recognition:
"It's more than just seeing the faces on the other side of the door, but knowing that you are impacting the lives of others in need."
"Food & Friends values the opinions of its volunteers and strives to make each visit a better experience for everyone involved."
"We were very impressed by how organized everything was and how everything has its own process. It is awesome that Food & Friends is able to provide the assistance that you do to your clients and cater to all of their dietary needs with healthy food."
"The staff is upbeat, fun and friendly and they always make me feel welcome and that whatever task I'm doing is truly beneficial and appreciated."
"This is such a great place to help. Everyone can get involved in her/his own way!"
