More than a fundraiser, Pie in the Sky fosters community spirit and engages the public in the mission of Community Servings -- Massachusetts' free home-delivered meals and nutrition program for the critically ill.
Each November since 1993, Boston's best restaurants, bakeries, caterers, and hotels donate thousands of pies that more than 700 volunteers then sell to family, friends and colleagues. Each pie costs $30, which provides a week's worth of nutritious home-delivered meals to a Community Servings' client and a tasty Thanksgiving treat to the buyer.
Corporate donors provide financial support and donations of in-kind services. Thanks to the dedication and generosity of our donors, pie sellers, and volunteers, $.91 of every $1.00 goes went directly to feeding Community Servings' clients.
Rest assured, when you support Community Servings through Pie in the Sky, your contribution goes to our neighbors in greatest need -- homebound individuals and families struggling with HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other life-threatening illnesses and who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves.
History of Pie in the Sky
In 1993, members of the restaurant community -- who lost many friends and colleagues to AIDS -- conceptualized and launched Pie in the Sky. Knowing how food can improve someone's emotional and physical well-being, Pie in the Sky was an ideal way for Boston's chefs, caterers, and restaurateurs to support Community Servings' clients. As our mission has expanded to serve people struggling with any life-threatening illness, our friends in the restaurant community have stood by us. Through their generosity, Pie in the Sky is now the "World's Greatest Bake Sale" -- raising 21% of Community Servings' private fundraising revenue! We are deeply grateful for their ongoing support and encourage you to frequent their establishments.
