About Us

“Dealing with HIV is tiresome and rejection by family can send you into a depression. At Food & Friends, I’m treated like a member of the family by everyone from the staff who greet you at the door to the nutritionist who gives you a warm hug. Food & Friends provides two critical ingredients: hope and health.”

Dining Out For Life® raises critically needed funds to support Food & Friends. Our home-delivered meals and nutrition counseling serve adults, children and families living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses throughout the Washington, D.C. area. For more than 30 years, we have been building a community of support with and for our neighbors, delivering hope and health, one meal at a time. Your support during Dining Out For Life® and throughout the year ensures we can continue providing life-sustaining nourishment to our neighbors in need.
