Where to Get Free Pie Downtown, Help Locals in Need
Visitors to Farragut Square can try some apple and pumpkin pies for free and help raise money to feed members of the D.C. community with major health problems today.
Food & Friends, which delivers free meals to people with AIDS, cancer and other serious illnesses, is set to hand out the complimentary dessert as part of its 10th Annual Slice of Life Thanksgiving pie sale. Representatives of the nonprofit organization are scheduled to set up near K and 17th streets NW from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
In addition to eating pie, passersby can learn how to buy them from Food & Friends. With each pie sale, the organization is able to provide a full day of meals for a person in need.
The pies cost between $28 and $45, according to the organization’s Slice of Life website.
“The 10th 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 million healthy meals this year to those in the community living with life-challenging illnesses,” according to a statement from Food & Friends. “The goal this year is to sell 9,000 pies.”
