Flo & Friends is an American syndicated daily comic strip drawn by Jenny Campbell and distributed by Creators Syndicate. The comic was originally created by John Gibel in 2002.

Flo & Friends centers on Flo, a senior citizen whose life does not conform to the stereotypes about the elderly. She hosts a radio show and works hard to stay mentally youthful and active. Flo's granddaughter Treggie lives with her and does a lot to keep Flo young, and also frequently highlights the vast differences between her own generation and her grandmother's.

The strip also features Flo's close friends, Ruthie and Winnie, as well as Treggie's Uncles Larry and Jack, and Cleo the cat and Jasper the dog.

The current author, Jenny Campbell, started at The Arizona Republic as the paper's first female copyboy going on to become a picture editor, occasional feature writer and sometime cartoonist. She graduated from Arizona State University in 1979 with a BA in journalism. She then worked for the Pasadena Star-News and the Orange County Register. She assumed responsibility for the strip after the sudden death of John Gibel in early 2005.
