Mama's Kitchen's 14th Annual Mama's Pies Thanksgiving Bake Sale will be kicking off on Saturday, November 10 from 9:30 pm to 11 am at Mama's Kitchen (3960 Home Ave, San Diego, CA 92105) with 40 amazing volunteers assembling, folding and labeling thousands of pie boxes for the bake sale.

This year Mama's Kitchen hopes to raise $140,000 to fund nearly 48,000 meals to help San Diegans struggling with critical illnesses.

About 40 volunteers from Mama’s Kitchen will be busy assembling, folding and labeling thousands of pie boxes for the annual Mama’s Pies Thanksgiving Bake Sale.

The boxes will then be delivered to local bakers who are donating their time to bake pies that are in turn sold by hundreds of volunteers to benefit Mama’s Kitchen. Each pie sold provides eight home-delivered meals to a neighbor struggling with a critical illness. This year, Mama’s Kitchen hopes to raise $140,000 to fund nearly 48,000 meals.  

For nearly 30 years, Mama’s Kitchen has served over eight million meals and has never turned away a client who qualified for its services.

The organization’s commitment to its clients remains unchanged and in May 2018 Mama’s Kitchen expanded its mission to serve San Diegans affected by HIV, cancer or other critical illnesses. As part of the expansion, Mama’s Kitchen now serves individuals affected by congestive heart failure and uncontrolled Type II diabetes.

Mama’s Kitchen currently provides delivered meals, pantry services and nutrition education services to over 1,200 men, women and children in San Diego County annually.
