About Us

At Caring for Friends, our mission and our passion can be boiled down to two simple, yet crucial, aspects of life: food and friendship.

Caring for Friends is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. We fulfill our mission through a homebound meals program, homeless outreach, and a food bank — thanks to the help of thousands of volunteers, donors, home cooks, and supporters.
