Consider donating a pie.

The most important ingredient in Pie Fest is, of course, pie. Last year, yes, we did run out of pie. This year as part of our efforts to make sure that this doesn't happen again, we are soliciting and accepting donations of baked pies. Please follow most of the rules of the Pie Fest 2016 Pie Baking Contest EXCEPT you can use a pre-made crust and you don't have to make two pies. We are very happy to accept singles.

The most important reason for Pie Fest is to support the Thurston County Food Bank and Senior Nutrition Program. Your one donated pie is worth $24 (8 slices @ $3 ea.) and with their size and connections the food bank can use this to feed a family of 4 for a week. Oh yeah, you get a ticket for a slice of pie too.
