Let them eat pie!



Annual Pie Party 2015, 3 to 6 p.m. at YWCA Tucson, 525 N. Bonita Ave. (West of I-10).

The Pie Party celebrates 12 years by bringing back the Pie Contest! Held for many years among friends, Pie Party was passed on to the Food Conspiracy Co-op in 2014 as a fundraiser and fun community event. Enter a pie, come to eat pie or come to celebrate community – there is something for everyone.

Pies will be judged and can be entered in the following categories: fruit, cream, vegan, other and wheat free. May the best pie win!

Drop off pies for donation or judging from 11:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m.

This year our community groups are:
Living Streets Alliance
Iskashitaa Refugee Network
Farm Education Resource Network – FERN
The HAPPY Organization Empowering Healthy Active Positive Purposeful Youth
