Everyone knows that the best part of Thanksgiving is the pie. This year, Boston Standard Company is pitching in to help Community Servings with Pie In The Sky! Throughout the year, Community Servings provides home-delivered, medically tailored meals to critically ill patients, their families and caregivers in the Greater Boston Area. Every Thanksgiving, Boston’s best chefs, bakers, restaurateurs and caterers pitch in to donate thousands of apple, pecan, pumpkin and sweet potato pies to benefit Community Servings. Each pie costs $28, and the proceeds from this event (more than $800,000) help Community Servings feed a critically ill client for a week.
Community Servings has been working in the Greater Boston Area since 1990, serving acutely ill patients by delivering delicious, nutritious food to their homes. Pie In The Sky, which was developed by members of Boston’s restaurant community, has been delivering pies in support of this service since 1993. Because of the generosity of the Boston community, Community Servings is able to direct $0.93 of every $1.00 to its mission of feeding the acutely ill. On November 24, Boston Standard Company will be rolling a truck to deliver holiday pies to some of the dozens of pickup locations in the Greater Boston Area. If you would like to help, there are many ways to lend a hand to this worthy cause.
Visit Pie In The Sky to buy a pie for yourself, or donate a pie in someone else’s honor. If you want to do more, you can join a group of about 700 pie-sellers in Boston who sell these delicious pies! Not a salesman? No problem! You can also volunteer to bake pies, but Community Servings will need your commitment by November 13. You can also help “behind the scenes” at Pie Central or in a number of other ways.
Get a great, fresh-baked pie for family and friends this Thanksgiving, or donate a pie to brighten up someone else’s Thanksgiving table. It’s a great way to kick off the holiday season!
