According to their website and their super cute/friendly full time volunteer here is a little about the organization:
Food & Friends provides meals, groceries and nutrition counseling to people living with life-challenging illnesses such as HIV/AIDS and cancer. Determination of eligibility is entirely health-based. Food & Friends has no requirements for income or insurance coverage. To be eligible for service, a person must have a qualifying primary illness; compromised nutritional status and a limited ability to prepare his/her own meals due to factors such as disability, illness, or medical treatment. Food & Friends provides meals and groceries to more than 1,450 clients. Since 1988, we have served more than 206,000 individuals. Food & Friends delivers throughout the metropolitan area, as far north as Hagerstown, Maryland, and as far south as Fredericksburg, Virginia, a total delivery area of nearly 5,500 square miles. Nearly 50% of our clients live in the District of Columbia.
And I really liked this comparison that I found on their website:
