In the DC Hospitality Industry and Need Food Help During Covid-19?

Our Goal

Communities all over the world are being affected by Covid-19 and the measures required to impede its spread. We, hospitality workers, have been hit especially hard, and together, we face an uncertain future. Friends and Family Meal is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded by two DC restaurant veterans for the purpose of taking care of the people who take care of people.

Our mission is to provide nutritious food to hospitality workers worried about food scarcity, while also keeping money flowing to struggling local farmers. We accomplish this through partnerships with our friends in the beverage industry and personal donations. Every Wednesday-Friday, we deliver these groceries with distribution partners and volunteers throughout Washington, DC.

Together we will get through this.

Friends and Family Meal was started by two longtime DC industry members who wanted to organize a way to help out during these tough times. 100% of donations go directly to providing groceries to those in need. Contact us at
