The turkey’s not cooked through, you’re scrambling to mash extra potatoes for the in-laws who RSVP’d last minute for dinner, and you could have sworn you had ground nutmeg in your cart when you checked out at the grocery store, but now it’s nowhere to be found. Does this Thanksgiving nightmare sound like a familiar scenario to you? Let Food & Friends cover dessert for you this year.

The DC nonprofit has a goal of delivering more than 3,500 turkeys this year to residents in DC and parts of Maryland and Virginia who are living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other critical illnesses. To raise funds, Food & Friends is hosting their annual Thanksgiving Pie Day sale and is aiming to sell 7,600 pies total.

Pies start at $25 each and this year’s selection includes homemade apple pies, spiced pumpkin pies, pecan pies and US Airways Almond Maretto brownies. For those of you that opt for the brownies, you receive a chance to win a $1,200 US Airways gift card. Each pie purchase provides one full day of meals to a Food & Friends client.

Pie sales end on November 15th and pre-purchased pies can be picked up on Tuesday, November 20th at Food & Friends or at one of 28 CVS locations throughout the area.

Marissa was born and bred in New Jersey, but moved to DC for undergrad at GWU (Go Colonials, go!), fell in love with the District and learned that there was life and civilization beyond New York City. She loves eating at white-tablecloth-three-forks-at-your-place-setting restaurants, but she’ll also be the first to suggest we scarf down some chili dogs at 2 am. Simply put, she loves all things food. You can also read about why she loves DC. Follow her on Twitter and email her at mbialecki (at)
