Food Bloggers Unite for a Cause: Slice of Life for Food & Friends

Slice of LifeDining in DC has created a team of fellow food bloggers and friends “Food Bloggers for a Cause” for this very special cause. While I am sure that you have heard of Food & Friends, I want to personally reach out to you to help me make a difference in the lives of DC Area residents in need. Just think about the impact that we could have on thousands of individuals in the DC area facing life-challenging illnesses.

SLICE OF LIFE  is the only area pie sale allowing Washingtonians to purchase Thanksgiving pies while impacting the lives of those in need in our community. I have committed to being a Sales Captain for Slice of Life this year and need YOUR help to ensure that it is a success.  There are multiple ways in which you can get involved:
 
PURCHASE PIES for yourself, or as gifts for friends, family, clients or colleagues. You can also purchase the pies which Food & Friends’ clients will receive with their Thanksgiving dinner. It’s easy with an online form (see below for steps) or you can go directly through me. I can take care of it all.
 
JOIN ME & HELP PROMOTE SLICE OF LIFE! Send an email to your friends and family asking them to support our team’s efforts to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors in need. Place the information on your website linking to our team page. Circulate the order forms at your workplace.

  • Flyer (may be used to distribute at work place or as attachment in email)
  • Distribution Sites (may be used with flyer in work place or as attachment in email)
  • Pie Order Form (to collect orders from family and friends)
     
    MAKE A DONATION. Every penny counts this season. Ask others for donations.

The What: Food & Friends is selling Harvest Apple Crumb, Picture Perfect Pumpkin and Oh So Sweet Potato for $25 each, and Southern Pecan and Creamy Chocolate Cheesecake for $35 each.  Each pie sold will directly impact the lives of children and adults facing HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses. Unfortunately, this is becoming more and more common in our daily lives.
