It’s fall! Orange leaves, holiday parties and holiday… baking. Oh, I know. You had the best of intentions. You were going to make cookies for the cookie exchange this year and even a pumpkin pie from scratch!

But the calendar already seems to be closing in on you, the to-do list is looming and frankly, there are too many boozy happy hours to get to!

Through November 17th, you can purchase holiday pies for yourself, friends and loved ones, or a Food & Friends client. $25, the cost of one of its gourmet pies, provides a full day of meals for a client battling HIV/AIDS or cancer.

That’s okay. We’ve got you covered! Food & Friends, the same folks who host the annual Dine Out For Life event, are holding their 5th Annual Slice of Life Thanksgiving pie sale. Food & Friends provides more than 1 million meals for folks in our community every year, and they can’t do it alone.

Their goal this year is to sell 7,200 pies, which will in turn feed 7,200 Food & Friends clients. Yep, one pie for one full day of nutritious, delicious meals for someone in need.

Where do you get one of these tasty pies? From Food & Friends:

Pies may be purchased directly from Food & Friends or through one of our corporate or individual pie sellers through November 17. Visit Food & Friends  to find a directory of pie sellers, sign up to help sell pies or purchase online via the website. Pre-purchased pies can be picked up on Tuesday, November 22nd at Food & Friends or 25 convenient CVS/pharmacy locations through the region.

Two birds. One stone. You show up with a handmade pie to your Thanksgiving feast AND you make  sure someone in your community does not go without food for one day.
