A Fall Pie Social for a Cause

If you’re indecisive over where to begin with your fall baking, allow me to bend your ear to pies.

Pie makes so much sense for this time of the year while late peaches and plums are still holding their spot at the markets.

Pears and apples are here too, as well as pumpkins and winter squash. It’s a bounty of produce, waiting to be tucked between flaky pie crust.

This inspiration, partnered with my passion for feeding others, led me to host an edible fundraiser last weekend: a fall pie social for a cause!

Sometime before Christmas I received an email from HungerFree, a division of World Vision: would I be interested in coming on board for their Quarterly project?

I had heard about this nifty new subscription box that raises funds for hunger relief efforts in Kenya. My friend Dennis is a HungerFree ambassador and he kicked things off last fall with the first ever HF Quarterly. Apparently, he also handed over my name to the HF team.

The request from the HungerFree head office came long before my resolve to do small things with great love — and before I really knew how much I would need a special love project in early 2017.

A chance to merge my passions with the HungerFree community and their desire for a hunger free world? Absolutely, I said. Just tell me what you need.
