WHAT IS THE SLICE OF LIFE: What’s Thanksgiving without pie? Now in its 12th year, Slice of Life has become a tradition in the Washington region. During this holiday season, pie teams and sellers, hundreds of volunteers and community members, will come together to ensure that our neighbors facing life-challenging illnesses enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving meal. Each pie sold provides one full day of healthy, home-delivered meals to a child or adult battling HIV/AIDS, cancer or another life-challenging illness.
ABOUT FOOD AND FRIENDS: Founded in 1988, Food & Friends began in the basement of the Westminster Presbyterian Church with 20 volunteers enlisted to deliver 15 meals/day serving a total of 1,800 meals to 60 clients. Since our inception, we have moved from the cramped church basement to our own state-of-the-art kitchen and pantry facility and initiated new programs to meet the changing needs of people living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses in the Washington, DC metropolitan community.

OUR REVIEW: The evening started off with a glass of white wine, mixing and mingling with staff, other patrons, and funders. Each pie was paired with a delicious wine. The Homemade Apple Pie is a perfectly flaky with the right amount of sweetness. The Spiced Pumpkin Pie has a creamy filling in a delectable crust with the perfect mix of spices and fresh pumpkin flavor. Oh So Sweet Potato Pie is an old fashioned treat filled with creamy sweet potato, brown sugar and cinnamon will be a beautiful addition to your holiday table. The Nutty Pecan Pie is a true southern treat w/a consistency of a pecan torte, this delectable dessert is overflowing with pecans and tastes even better warm. The American Airlines Sky Pie is a salted caramel and gooey chocolate brownie marry in this one-of-a-kind pie drizzled with salted caramel and sprinkled with gourmet sea salt.
