30th Annual “Pie In The Sky” for Community Servings

“Pie In The Sky” was created by Community Servings CEO David B. Waters and is one of the most successful bake sales in the country.  For a donation of $30 you receive a freshly baked Apple, Pecan, or Pumpkin pie as a Thank You for your support.  More than 90 cents of every $1 raised goes directly to Community Servings Clients who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves.  Community Servings is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts.

ONE $30 Pie – or $30 donation – provides ONE WEEK of medically tailored meals for a Community Servings Client, their children, and caretaker at home.
