    Spread the community giving this Thanksgiving season and serve your neighbors living with life-challenging illnesses. Join RPCV/W to help prepare home meals with other RPCVs. 

    Food & Friends works to foster a community caring for those living with HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other life-challenging illnesses by preparing and delivering specialized meals and groceries in conjunction with nutrition counseling. They simply could not provide more than 1 million meals annually without volunteers like us.
