WHAT: Pie in the Sky is Community Servings’ annual fall bake sale – now celebrating its 20th anniversary! Each November since 1993, Boston's best restaurants, bakeries, caterers and hotels donate thousands of pies that over 600 volunteers then sell to family, friends and colleagues. Each pie costs $25, providing a week's worth of hearty home-delivered meals to a Community Servings' client and a tasty Thanksgiving treat to the buyer. Pie in the Sky 2011 raised $550,000 with $.93 of every dollar raised going directly to Community Servings’ programs. Through 20 years of Pie in the Sky, Community Servings has raised $6 million to provide hundreds of thousands of meals to critically ill neighbors who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves.
