Special Events


We host a number of events throughout the year which raise critical funds for our services. Our events range from an day of dining out to a pie sale to a special evening featuring tastings from the area’s best chefs. It’s easy to get involved and you’ll find each event to be fun, festive and a great avenue for supporting Food & Friends. Also, thanks to the generosity of the community, many individuals and business host events or promotions on our behalf. Check out our Community Events & Promotions page to see special ways you can support Food & Friends. We hope to see you, and your friends, at one of our upcoming events.
