Help Food & Friends Provide Healthy Meals to People with Life-Challenging Illnesses through Annual Slice of Life Thanksgiving Pie Sale


WHAT:
Food & Friends is holding its annual Slice of Life Pie Selling Campaign, which funds nutritious, home-delivered meals and groceries to the critically ill in our community. Slice of Life 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.

We critically need your help to get the word out about this effort. The goal this year is to sell 7,600 pies.

Each pie purchased will provide ONE FULL DAY of MEALS for a Food & Friends client. Homemade Apple Pies, Spiced Pumpkin Pies, Nutty Pecan Pies, US Airways Almond Amaretto Brownies are available for purchase. Those who purchase the US Airways Almond Amaretto Brownie will receive one chance to win a $1,200 US Airways gift card. Donors may also purchase a pie for a Food & Friends client that will be delivered with their holiday meal on Thanksgiving Day.

WHEN: Pie sales are open and close November 15th. Pre-purchased pies can be picked up on Tuesday, November 20th at Food & Friends or 28 convenient CVS/pharmacy locations through the region.

WHERE: Pies may be purchased directly from Food & Friends or through one of our corporate or individual pie sellers. Visit www.foodandfriends.org/pie to find a directory of pie sellers, sign up to help sell pies or purchase online.
