Beat TSUN Happy Hour TONIGHT!

Join OSUDC and the alumni of TSUN for our annual happy hour and food drive at Fado Irish Pub in Chinatown TONIGHT, November 15! Help us beat TSUN by collecting more food items to donate to the Arlington Food Assistance Center!

Please bring the following items to be donated:

  • Canned tomato products (diced, paste, & sauce)
  • Canned soup
  • Canned fruit
  • Cereal
  • Peanut butter
  • Cooking oil

We discourage glass containers as they can break in transport or in the warehouse.

Help us raise money for Food & Friends by buying your Thanksgiving pies through our Slice of Life seller pageThe deadline to purchase pies is tomorrow, Thursday, November 16!

When you purchase your Thanksgiving pie from Food & Friends, you contribute to every step that goes into providing one full day of meals for our neighbors living with critical illnesses.

This year, serve a Thanksgiving pie that will warm your heart and help your neighbors.

This year, Slice of Life has extra meaning because all contributions will also support the vital work of our sister agency, Bill’s Kitchen in San Juan, Puerto Rico, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria. Much like Food & Friends, this organization provides nutrition and home-delivered meals to 800 individuals living with HIV/AIDS. 10% of funds raised through Slice of Life will be contributed to Bill’s Kitchen as they work to restore their facility and services.

Food & Friends

Pie sales are open now! Buy yours by visiting our seller page here. Sales run through Thursday, November 16, and pies must be picked up at the site you select on Tuesday, November 21.
