Pies for the People

Thanksgiving Desserts to Benefit Santa Barbara Foodbank

If you like your dessert with a side of good karma, get to know Pies for the People. The vision of private chef Lori Stern is simple enough: three classic Thanksgiving pie flavors (old-fashioned apple, pecan, and pumpkin), all made to order and available for pickup on Thanksgiving Eve. The price is a reasonable $20 for an organic 9-inch pie (pumpkin is available regular or gluten-free style), and 10 percent of the proceeds go straight to the Santa Barbara Foodbank. What’s more, this year the pie party shakes down at Municipal Winemakers, which means one-stop shopping for all your boozy and sweet holiday essentials — dished up guilt-free, of course. Pies for the People pops up at Municipal Winemakers (22 Anacapa St.) on Wednesday, November 27, from 6 to 9 p.m. for pickup. To place an order, email or call (805) 633-0962.
