Slice of Life

Carolyn Schmidt

Anyone can get sick. Everyone can help. 

That's why I invite you to join me and BUY PIE. Your pie purchase will help provide free, home delivered, freshly-prepared and medically-tailored meals or groceries to individuals who are living with a serious or chronic illness.

Every day, health care professionals make referrals requesting Food & Friends provide meals and nutrition counseling for their seriously ill patients. More than half of our clients live below the poverty line. They struggle to make ends meet and often have to choose between food or medicine. Food & Friends eliminates that choice and makes sure they receive the nutrition they need to manage their symptoms and treatment so that they can focus on getting better.

Each person supported by Food & Friends is either nutritionally compromised or unable to procure or prepare meals because of their illness symptoms or serious treatment side effects from cancer, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, congestive heart failure, COPD, ALS, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, or renal disease.

When you buy a pie from me today, you will let them know they are not alone. Anyone get sick and you can help by joining a community of neighbors helping neighbors!

More than half of our $10.9 million budget is supported by philanthropy. Slice of Life raises nearly $350,000 to support our program operations! Your pie purchase will help Food & Friends prepare, package and deliver more than 1 million meals to 3,800 individuals this year.

I am grateful for your support. Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving!
