Mama’s Kitchen’s Pie in the Sky Bake Sale Sells Thanksgiving Pies from October 12th through November 22nd.
Each November since 2005, dozens of San Diego restaurants, bakeries, and caterers donate thousands of pies that volunteers then sell to family, friends and colleagues. Delicious apple, pumpkin, pecan and crunchy Dutch apple pies cost $25 each ($15 is tax deductible), providing over eight hearty home-delivered meals to a Mama’s Kitchen client and a tasty Thanksgiving dessert to the buyer.
Corporate donors provide financial support and donations of in-kind services. Thanks to the dedication and generosity of our pie sellers and volunteers, all proceeds of the Pie in the Sky bake sale go directly to the daily operations of Mama’s Kitchen.
Rest assured, when you support Mama’s Kitchen through Pie in the Sky, your contribution goes directly to our neighbors in greatest need -- homebound individuals and families struggling with life-threatening illnesses such as AIDS or cancer, who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves.
Here is how you -- the community -- make Pie in the Sky happen:
- Dozens of Bakers throughout San Diego County bake and donate thousands of apple, pumpkin, pecan and Dutch apple pies.
- Volunteer Pie Sellers take orders from their family, friends and coworkers in the weeks before Thanksgiving. Buyers can also buy pies or donate to Mama’s Kitchen by visiting mamaspies.org.
- Pies are then shipped to over 20 public pick up sites throughout San Diego County. Pie buyers pick up their pies on the day before Thanksgiving at their preselected pick up location.
- Thanks to the generosity of our community, Mama’s Kitchen's clients sit down to lovingly prepared homestyle meals -- on Thanksgiving and every day of the year.
At Mama’s Kitchen we believe that everyone is entitled to the basic necessity of life — nutritious food. As a community-driven organization, we provide nutrition support to men, women, and children affected by AIDS or cancer who are vulnerable to hunger.
