Sign up to volunteer this winter! Kitchen and delivery help still needed in February!

Food & Friends’ services are made possible with the help of thousands supporters. Without this generosity, we would not be able to provide nutritious meals, daily, to our neighbors in need.

From our kitchen to our clients’ tables, fresh, delicious, and specialized meals are prepared, packaged and home-delivered Monday through Saturday, year-round.

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.

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.

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

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.
