This is the season of giving, and a city full of chefs and bakers are donating pies to benefit Meals of Wheels.
Pumpkin pies, pecan pies and pumpkin bread are donated by Dallas’ best bakers and are purchased by the community for $25 per pie and $12 per loaf. All proceeds benefit VNA’s programs and services. For those who don’t like pie or who will be out of town for the holiday, the website offers the option to purchase a “zero calorie pie” for $25; that’s a $25 donation, no pie.
All the money, 100%, is donated and used by VNA for their services.
Pies are ordered online at www.powerofpie.org and purchasers select their preferred date and pick-up location throughout Dallas, Collin and Denton counties. The deadline to place orders is Monday, November 18th. Pie pick up is November 26th or 27th, depending on the selected location.
Bakers include: 3015 at Trinity Groves, Bisous-Bisous Patisserie, Bresnan Bread and Pastry, Brookhollow Golf Club, Cafe Momentum, Central Market, Collin College, Empire Baking Company, Flora Street Café, Haute Sweets Patisserie, Knife, Lakewood Country Club, Norma’s Cafe, Oddfellows, Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, Tarrant County College, The Preston of the Park Cities, The Sweet Life Chef, TRIO, Uncle Willie’s Pies, Ventura Foods, and Wolfgang Puck Catering. With these amazing people and restaurants participating, you are getting a bargain and helping feed important people each day.
Power of Pie was born out of the idea that pie is a truly special thing, standing out amongst practically all other foodstuffs as a symbol of comfort, home and family. For $25.00 a pie and $12 for pumpkin bread, families have a way to experience some of the best baking North Texas has to offer, with 100% of their pie purchase going to provide comfort and care for senior neighbors through Meals on Wheels, Hospice and Palliative Care. There is no sweeter way to help our elderly, homebound neighbors and families in crisis feel that they are not alone this holiday season.
“For many of our clients, the holidays are difficult. I’m grateful to the members of the culinary community who donate their time and talent to this beloved event, as well as our generous supporters for ensuring that the holidays are a special and memorable time for our clients,” says Katherine Krause, President and CEO of VNA.
