Buy a Pie for a Good Cause!

Hi, Everyone.
I wanted to pass this along (especially to those of you who live in DC area). This announcement comes from my fellow food blogger and friend Lisa. Please read and help if you can!

Dear Friend,
Even though we just saw the end of summer and the fall season is just beginning, I have already started to think about how to make a difference in the lives of those in need this season. This Thanksgiving, by working together, you and I have the opportunity to put nutritious meals on the tables of thousands in need just by purchasing your Holiday pies from Food & Friends.

Food & Friends is selling Harvest Apple Crumb, Picture Perfect Pumpkin and Oh So Sweet Potato for $25 each, and Southern Pecan and Creamy Chocolate Cheesecake for $35 each. Each pie you purchase will directly impact the lives of children and adults facing HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses. Unfortunately, this is becoming more and more common in our daily lives.

I have committed to being a Sales Captain for Slice of Life this year and need your help to ensure that it is a success. There are multiple ways in which you can get involved:

PURCHASE PIES for yourself, or as gifts for friends, family, clients or colleagues. You can also purchase the pies which Food & Friends’ clients will receive with their Thanksgiving dinner. It's easy with an online form or you can go directly through me. I can take care of it all.

JOIN ME & HELP PROMOTE SLICE OF LIFE! Send an email to your friends and family asking them to support our team’s efforts to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors in need.

MAKE A DONATION. Every penny counts this season.

To Purchase Your Pies & Join the Team, visit and Select Dining in DC Unites Food Bloggers for a Cause.

Food & Friends home-delivers specialized meals and provides nutrition services to men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses. Services are free of charge and offered to individuals who qualify on their health need alone. Since their beginning in 1988, thanks to the help of generous donors like you, Food & Friends has delivered more than 11 million meals to more than 18,000 individuals.

If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know. Thank you for joining me, and Food & Friends, in the fight against HIV/AIDS, cancer and the other life-challenging illnesses that grip our community.

Thank you,
Best regards,
Lisa Shapiro
