Mama’s Kitchen kicked off its 17th Annual Mama’s Pies Fundraiser and will continue until November 24. This is a bake-sale fundraising program that benefits Mama’s Kitchen—San Diego’s only free, county-wide home-delivered meals program for individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS, cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and chronic kidney disease. Volunteers sell Thanksgiving pies that are generously donated and baked by local caterers, casinos, restaurants, and bakeries.

Each pie sold allows Mama’s Kitchen to cook, prepare, and deliver 12 nutritious meals to their  clients. Pies sell for $30 each with $15 being tax-deductible – you can’t go wrong! The choices are: apple, Dutch apple, pecan, and pumpkin. On a diet?  Consider buying a “Love-A-Client Pie” (a donated pie) for just $30 or make a donation.

Purchasing is as simple as pie!  You can order directly online: and credit one of the 90 teams or individuals or order directly with the individuals. On Wednesday, November 24 (the day before Thanksgiving), you can pick up your pie order at one of the Public Pie Pickup Sites.
