Washington, D.C.: Food and Friends Begins Construction

October 9, 2002

Food and Friends, a Washington-based agency that provides home-delivered meals, groceries and nutrition counseling to people with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-threatening diseases, began construction yesterday on a 25,000-square-foot building. The facility will be open in about a year on a 2.5-acre parcel at 219 Riggs Road NE; it will replace the significantly smaller building at 58 L Street that Food and Friends has used for seven years. Construction was financed partly by private grants, a $1 million community block grant from the District of Columbia, and a $2 million appropriation from Congress. Since expanding its service area in 2000, the agency has been providing meals to people in the District and 14 counties in Maryland and Virginia.
