THANK YOU MAGGIE
Years ago when the first group of visitors came to Hastings, they sat in a semi-circle inside the little Pie Shop on Main Street and listened to the Pie Lady tell the stories of hunger and need in the farming community just 15 minutes west of St. Augustine. The stories and the needs resonated with the parishioners from Christ Episcopal Church at Serenata and a wonderful partnership began. Maggie Domini attended that first meeting and for the past seven years has been a vocal cheerleader of all things Pie. This week, Board President, Loretta McMaster, who is also a member of CEC Serenata, brought Maggie to the warehouse so she could see the work her church community supports. Thank you Maggie, for always being in our corner, from that first day in a Pie Shop on Main Street, to this month in our warehouse on Riberia. It is because of supporters like you that we can do what we do!
A BERRY SPECIAL MONTH
Strawberries are always a favorite with our seniors. We don't get to have them too often because of the price, but this month there were smiles all around. "The folks on my route were so appreciative of this wonderful surprise and commented on the fabulous aroma of the fresh berries," said Volunteer Driver, Christina. 🍓

TAKE A SLICE OUT OF SENIOR HUNGER
You know it costs Pie in the Sky just $262.50 to bring fresh, healthy produce to low-income seniors in our community. We know that may seem like a lot, so we've broken it down to give you an idea on how you can help. Any way you wanna slice it, invite some friends, share with a church group, get your BFF on-board. It all adds up! No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.
