Who doesn’t love pie? Food and Friends, a D.C.-based ” nonprofit organization that provides home-delivered, specialized meals and life-sustaining nutrition to people living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses” is hosting Pie Day on October 31 (i.e. Halloween) from 11:30am-1:30pm in Farragut Square. They will give away FREE PIE to passers by and host fun and games all in the name of charity.
It’s not like we won’t all be sitting on our floors surrounded by a mountain of spent Halloween candy wrappers and shame later on in the evening. If you’re going to blow a diet, might as well blow it spectacularly. That’s what my Uncle always told me. (He died at 31 from a toxic mix of gout, high blood pressure and diabetic cardiac arrest, coincidentally.)
From the release:
“The sixth annual Slice of Life Thanksgiving pie sale is a simple and delicious way for members of the public to support Food & Friends’ large-scale effort to deliver 1.2 million healthy meals this year to those in the community living with life-challenging illnesses. The goal this year is to sell 7,600 pies. Each pie purchased will provide ONE FULL DAY of MEALS for a Food & Friends client.
Pies may be purchased directly from Food & Friends or through corporate or individual pie sellers. Visit www.foodandfriends.org/pie to find a directory of pie sellers, sign up to help sell pies or purchase online.
