We can’t wait to see everyone to cheer on the team and raise money for our Spearman scholarship fund. See you at the gamewatches!

Help us raise money for Food & Friends by buying your Thanksgiving pies through our Slice of Life seller page!

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.
