The 2010 MANNA (Metropolitan Area Neighborhood Nutrition Alliance) “Pie in the Sky Bake Sale For Better Health” ends this Friday, November 19th at noon.
Every baked good sold helps to support MANNA, a program that provides nourishing meals to Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey locals coping with life-threatening illnesses. This year, for its twentieth anniversary, MANNA’s goal is to sell and distribute over 10,000 Thanksgiving pies in the Philadelphia area.
You can order online directly from MANNA, or from one of over 200 pie sellers (also listed on MANNA’s website). Three different pies — apple, pecan and pumpkin — and three different cakes — carrot, cheesecake with cherry topping, and chocolate fudge cake — are available at $25 each.
The pie pick-up dates are Tuesday, November 23rd and Wednesday, November 24th. You choose the date and one of the 60 pick-up locations most convenient for you.
