What's Thanksgiving Without Pie? Buy, Sell, Donate, Help!

Now in its 9th year, Slice of Life has become a tradition throughout the Washington region. During this holiday season, pie teams and sellers, hundreds of volunteers and the community, will all come together to ensure that our neighbors facing life-challenging illnesses enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving meal.

Slice of Life is a community-based fundraiser that encourages supporters to purchase their holiday pies through Food & Friends. Every pie purchased provides one full day of meals for a Food & Friends client – community members battling HIV/AIDS, cancer or another critical illness. These meals not only provide vital nourishment, but hope and comfort in their time of need. This holiday season, there is really no easier way to make a difference.

Baguette Republic, located in Sterling, Virginia, is a traditional wholesale bakery producing a large variety of artisan breads, cookies and pastries using the best European techniques and tradition. We offered their pies to supporters last year and received RAVE reviews! We know their pies will be the perfect addition to your holiday table.

This year, we need your help to make Slice of Life a huge success by selling 9,000 pies - we are offering five delicious flavors: Homemade Apple, Spiced Pumpkin, Oh So Sweet Potato, Southern Pecan and the American Airlines Sky Pie – a chocolate amaretto brownie with almonds and powdered sugar.

Pie Sellers are needed to spread the word about Slice of Life and help sell more than 9,000 pies to support our clients this holiday season. Sellers receive a webpage for collecting sales and donations, tips, email content and graphics for social media. You can sell as an individual or start a team.

Buy a pie, or two, for a Food & Friends client and we'll deliver it with their full holiday meal on Thanksgiving Day. Within the shopping cart, just select "Pies for Food & Friends Clients."

Simply order your pies online, select one of our convenient pick up locations, pick up your pie on Tuesday, November 24th, and enjoy!

More than 2,700 people who face remarkable challenges depend on Food & Friends each day, 6 days a week. Food & Friends' staff and volunteers will deliver more than 1 million meals this year and help bring holiday cheer to those who need it the most. We’re hoping that you will lend your support and a small amount of your time – all you have to do is buy a pie. Place your order at
