Dear San Diego, Eat A Pie

Sam The Cooking Guy does his part for Mama’s Pies

It’s almost the holidays, so for me, that means food. Especially PIE!!! I looooove a good pie, but then who doesn’t ;-) But since I work three jobs, I don’t really have enough time to bake my own dang pie.

If you are in the San Diego, why not get your yummy pies for Mama’s Pies, and do some good at the same time? You might even win something. I mean, besides a full tummy and that satisfied feeling of doing something good at the same time. And YOU ALL KNOW how much supporting those with cancer means to me.


Mama’s Kitchen, a nonprofit organization that delivers healthy meals at no cost to San Diego men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS or cancer, presents their seventh annual Mama’s Pie in the Sky Thanksgiving Bake Sale. The fundraiser officially begins today, Oct. 3 and runs through Nov. 20, 2011. Pie buyers can purchase fresh pumpkin, pecan, apple and no-sugar added apple pies for just $20 each; with $15 from each pie being tax deductible. Pies can be purchased online via or by calling (619) 233-6262.

All proceeds from pie sales go directly into funding thousands of free, hot and nutritious Mama’s Kitchen meals, which help ensure that no one living with AIDS or cancer will go hungry in the San Diego community. This year, the popular “Love-A-Client” Pie raffle returns. Purchase a pie to be delivered to a Mama’s Kitchen client on Thanksgiving and enter to win a 64GB iPad2. The more client pies purchased, the more chances to enter and win. Individuals and sales teams will also have opportunities to win prizes from generous sponsors.

Mama’s Kitchen hopes to sell more than 6,000 pies during the six-week sales period, which will raise $125,000 and fund nearly 40,000 meals. Individuals and teams are encouraged to volunteer to sell pies for a chance to win prizes from generous sponsors. Pie sellers are also encouraged to use their social media networks to promote their participation in Mama’s Pie in the Sky, as all sales funnel through their sales website.
