Washington, DC

Get Involved

On Thursday, April 12th, the local community will unite to help Food & Friends provide so much more than a meal. The funds raised through Dining Out for Life support adults and children in the Washington area facing HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses.


Dining Out for Life is a GREAT way to show your compassion for our neighbors in need. Participating restaurants pledge between 25-110% of their proceeds on this one day in support of Food & Friends' life-saving services. In turn, Food & Friends rallies the community to DINE OUT and support participating restaurants. Join us for a fantastic day of philanthropy, fun and community commitment. Contact Toresha Tate with any questions about what it takes to be a Restaurant partner at  ttate@foodandfriends.org or (202) 269-6826.

Volunteering is a great way to do something good for the community and feel great while doing it!  This April, we need your help to make Dining Out for Life a success by serving as a Restaurant Host. As a Restaurant Host you'll be stationed at one of our participating restaurants on April 12th during lunch or dinner service hours. Your primary responsibility is to invite your friends, family and colleagues to dine with you, greet and thank diners for coming out and raise money to support the clients at Food & Friends. Sign up to host as an individual or make the night even better by signing up to host with a group of friends! We hope you will join us to help make this day a huge success - the value to our neighbors living with HIV/AIDS and cancer is immeasurable.
