Washington, DC (October 23, 2012) – Food & Friends will be hosting a community Pie Day on October 31st from 11:30 to 1:30pm at Farragut Square in support of their annual Slice of Life Pie Selling Campaign, which funds nutritious, home-delivered meals and groceries to the critically ill in the DC area.
During the event, volunteers will be distributing information about Slice of Life, raffling off prizes, and hosting pie-themed games. And although you can’t order or purchase pies at this event, you will get to taste free samples of Sterling Virginia-based Baguette Republic’s four different pies and brownies that will be offered this season.
The sixth annual Slice of Life Thanksgiving Pie Sale is a simple and delicious way for members of the public to support Food & Friends’ large-scale effort to deliver 1.2 million healthy meals this year to those in the community living with life-challenging illnesses.
They have set an ambitious goal to sell 7,600 pies this year. Each pie purchased will provide one full day of meals for a Food & Friends client.
Pies may be purchased directly from Food & Friends (here) or through one of their corporate or individual pie sellers. After you purchase your pie online, head over to Food & Friends or 28 convenient CVS/pharmacy locations through the region on November 20th.
