SPSCC Students Make Pies for Pie Fest 2016.

A doffing of the toque blanche to the fine folks of the South Puget Sound Community College Baking and Pastry Arts Program. Here's a video of them making 40 pies in support of Pie Fest 2016. Aren't you inspired to donate a pie of your own?

Less than 2 weeks until the Pie Fest 2016 Pie Baking Contest ((Entries accepted from 10 - 11:30 am) and Pie Fest 2016 (starts at 1pm)!

If you feel like baking but don't want to compete, we are happy to accept your donated pie. No judging, just gratitude for your support of the Thurston County Food Bank and Senior Nutrition Program. And a ticket for a slice of pie during the Fest.

We often run short of sugar-free and gluten-free pies.

Hope you can join us!
