16th Annual Mama’s Pies Thanksgiving Bake Sale Now Open

| November 15, 2020 | 0 Comments

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. Mama’s Kitchen is San Diego’s only free, countywide, home-delivered meal program for individuals and families experiencing these critical illnesses. The event will implement new procedures this year, such as drive-through pie pickup, to ensure a healthy holiday season for all.

Online pie sales continue through Nov. 21, 2020. 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 their orders and can pick up their pies on Nov. 25. Visit mamaskitchen.org to purchase your pie for the holiday season.

“Mama’s Pies is a holiday tradition like no other and for an important cause,” says Alberto Cortés, CEO, Mama’s Kitchen. “During these challenging times, when we have seen a significant increase for nutrition services, Mama’s Kitchen’s work is essential to ensure our immunocompromised community members are not risking their health and lives to obtain a meal. We are currently home-delivering more than 12,200 meals a week, all throughout San Diego County. The funds we raise through our Mama’s Pies bake sale will help to provide more medically tailored meals and keep our clients safe, healthy and at home. Each Thanksgiving pie purchase provides 12 meals for a critically ill San Diegan. It makes for a fun and important way to give back through your holiday celebration.”

All proceeds from pie sales directly fund Mama’s Kitchen’s services and programs. The event is made possible with the generous support of sponsors including Nordstrom, Shamrock Foods, Sycuan Casino Resort, Behind the Scenes Catering & Events, Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine.

Delicious pies are available through November 21, 2020.
