Pie Sales Coming to a Close: Order While You Still Can!

Thanksgiving is getting closer. Do you know what you’re having for dessert?

If your mind is flooded with images of the season’s staples, freshly baked apple and pumpkin pies, you’re in luck and you’re just in time.

It is the last week to buy pies from Slice of Life before sales close on November 19th. Thousands have already been sold by our dedicated teams and sellers. But, we want to make this year extra special by exceeding our goal of selling 9,000 pies!

Purchasing a pie from Slice of Life doesn’t just make you the favorite at the dinner table come Thanksgiving Day; it really makes a difference in the community. Whether the pie is for yourself, a Food & Friends client, or you just make a donation, you are ensuring that someone with a life-challenging illness is getting healthy, home-delivered meals throughout the year.

Pies are available to be picked up on Tuesday, November 24th, from 12:00 pm until 8:00 pm. Pick up locations are at various CVS/pharmacy storefronts throughout the area. To find the most convenient location, go to

If you are unable to buy a pie this year, remember that any donation can help Food & Friends' clients year-round. You can make a contribution on the website or over the phone at (202) 269-6896.

Another way to help out is by volunteering at any of the 38 pick-up sites on November 24. There are three shift times to choose from and you will be able to pick the location you prefer. You will receive a Volunteer Training Call before the pick-up date to inform you of your duties and a volunteer t-shirt will be provided. Sign-Up to Volunteer.

We hope you can help us bring joy this holiday season to those who need it the most!
