Known as “The World’s Greatest Bake Sale,” Pie in the Sky, Community Servings’ annual bake sale, is now in its 30th year. The seasonal fundraiser allows folks to purchase pies prepared and donated by more than 150 local chefs, bakers and restaurants. The proceeds support the not-for-profit food and nutrition program, which provides services throughout Massachusetts to individuals and families living with critical and chronic illnesses. Pies—whose flavors include pumpkin, apple, pecan —go for $30 a pop and enable Community Servings to provide tens of thousands of scratch-made, diet-specific meals throughout the year. If spending the night before Thanksgiving rolling out pie dough doesn’t tickle your fancy, snag one of theirs to bring to dinner instead. More info here.
