Illness doesn't take a vacation. Donate to our Summer Food Fund today!

Good nutrition helps clients feel better, manage their illness and cope with harsh medications. We stress variety and flavor because healthy food is only good when eaten.

We home-deliver friendship and compassion across 5,300 square miles of the Washington Metropolitan Area – no matter the weather!

Our services are possible thanks to a community of more than 10,000 caring volunteers who serve in our kitchen, on the road, in the office and at events.

Our Mission

The mission of Food & Friends is to foster a community caring for men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses by preparing and delivering specialized meals and groceries in conjunction with nutrition counseling.
