Pie proceeds provide meals and nutrition to 2,000 critically ill and homebound people in Massachusetts.

 

25th Anniversary of Pie in the Sky
Sponsorship Opportunities

 
Community Servings is New England’s only home-delivered meals program for the critically ill, and plays a vital role in the lives of our neighbors who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves and their families. Our staff and volunteers prepare 2,600 medically tailored lunches and dinners each day to the homes of over 2,000 homes each year. Our clients live in 20 cities and towns throughout eastern Massachusetts from Boston to Brockton, to Lowell & Lawrence, and west to Worcester. They battle 35 different types of illnesses, including HIV/AIDS, diabetes, breast and other cancers, and kidney disease. 
 
We work hard to serve the region’s most vulnerable and underserved populations:  92% of our clients live in poverty; and families and children receive 50% of our meals. Hearty, nutrient dense, made from scratch, and medically tailored meals from Community Servings allow our clients to meet their nutritional needs and rebuild strength.
 
Our 25th annual Thanksgiving bake sale will account for over 17% of our private annual fundraising dollars.  More than a fundraiser, Pie in the Sky engages the public in our mission and fosters community spirit. Every Thanksgiving since 1993, more than 20,000 people throughout Greater Boston—including corporate sponsors, pie buyers, pie sellers, pie bakers, and volunteers—have come together to create the World’s Greatest Bake Sale and to help feed their neighbors in need.
 
Thanks to the support of the Greater Boston business community, Community Servings sold 21,000 pies and raised $770,000 from Pie in the Sky in 2016. We continue to see growth each year. Our generous sponsors, in turn, received valuable marketing and communications benefits
