Pies and pitbulls. These are two of our favorite things. In fact, several years ago, we even toyed with the idea of having a pie truck. Oh yes–long before food trucks crowded the streets of nearly every city across the country, we dreamed of cruising the streets in a souped up Airstream and dishing out delicious cherry, chessboard, apple, and pecan pies.
We didn’t end up with a pie truck but we did end up adopting an adorable pitbull from a rescue called Bully Paws. And of course, we eat pie. In moderation. Except on Thanksgiving.
But we digress.
The the other night we were brainstorming about a creative way to raise money for a local pitbull charity when an email from Food & Friends landed in our inbox touting their Slice of Life campaign. Each purchase provides healthy, home-delivered meals to a child or adult battling HIV/AIDS, cancer or another life-challenging illness.
This was a perfect opportunity to support Food & Friends, sell delicious pie (and make our non-baking friends happy), and raise money for a pitbull rescue. Not just any pitbull rescue, but the organization where Polly, our resident doggie mascot and squirrel chaser, was adopted.
So we were able to do some good, get some tasty pie, and support our socially responsible mission, all in one fell swoop. Coolness.
