The holidays are right around the corner and Mama’s Kitchen is hard at work to once again ring in the season with its highly anticipated Mama’s Pies Thanksgiving Bake Sale. The annual event helps raise critical funds for the nonprofit to provide nutrition services to San Diegans vulnerable to hunger due to HIV, cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and now chronic kidney disease.
The event will implement new procedures this year such as drive-through pie pickup to ensure a healthy holiday season for all. Volunteers sell Thanksgiving pies baked and donated by local caterers, restaurants, and bakeries including Behind the Scenes Catering & Events, Sugar and Scribe, Twiggs Bakery & Coffeehouse, Wyndham Destinations, Jenny Wenny Cakes, Southside Biscuits, and more. San Diego’s top pastry chefs, caterers, and bakeries will donate their time and talent to bake 3,000 traditional Thanksgiving pies to help Mama’s Kitchen reach its goal of raising $125,000 during the six-week sales period to fund 50,000 meals to benefit the organization’s clients. Each pie sold allows Mama’s Kitchen to cook, prepare, and deliver 12 nutritious meals to our neighbors battling critical illnesses.
Pie flavors include pumpkin, traditional apple, pecan, and Dutch apple, and are available for just $30 each. Buyers may select one of the 11 drive-through public pickup sites when placing orders online and can pick up their pies on November 25.
