Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Love-A-Client Raffle Pie?
Our Love-a-Client Raffle Pie is pie that's donated to Mama's clients. When you order a pie and designate it as a Client Pie, you will automatically be entered into our Love-A-Client raffle drawing to win a new third generation 64GB iPad! The more Love-A-Client pies you purchase, the more times you will be entered to win, so be generous!
What do I have to do to be a Pie Seller?
It's easy! Just sign up as a Pie Seller online, either as an individual or under a Team name. Then get the word out to friends, co-workers and family. You can post your own personal message, print out flyers and marketing materials, send reminder e-cards and link to Facebook and Twitter, all from your 'My Pie Sales' page at www.mamaspies.org! We need pie sellers to help us meet our goal of 6,250 pies, so sign up today and see how easy it is!
What is the minimum number of pies I can set as my sales goal?
You can sell any number of pies you feel comfortable with! Remember, for every pie you sell, Mama's Kitchen can prepare and deliver over 6 meals to one of our clients, so the more you sell, the more you are helping those in need. Go to your personal Pie Seller page ('My Pie Sales') to update your Pie Sales Goal.
Can I designate my own place of business as a pie Pick Up Site?
Yes! Just fill out the Private Pick-Up Site form (located in the Marketing Materials tab on your Pie Sales page) or call Kim at 619-233-6262. If you sell 50 pies or more, we will even deliver those pies to your private pick up site! Be sure to give your buyers your assigned Pick-Up Site number so they can indicate your Pick-Up Site as their designated pick up location when they order.
What flavors do the pies come in, and can I request which restaurant makes my pie?
We have Apple, Pumpkin, Pecan and No-Sugar-Added Apple pies available. Unfortunately, it is not possible to a pie from a particular baker, but we assure you that all the pies are made with love.
Will you deliver my pies to me?
We have 21 public Pick-Up sites around San Diego County. If you are a Pie Seller and wish to designate your own site as a Pick-Up Site for your pie buyers, you may do so. If you sell 50 or more pies, we will deliver them to your Pick-Up Site.
I am going out of town for Thanksgiving. Can I have my pies sent out of town?
Unfortunately we are not set up to send pies out of San Diego. You can pick up your pies at Mama's Kitchen, 3960 Home Avenue, on TUESDAY, NOV. 20th from 10am-4pm if you select this option when checking out. (Otherwise, you can pick up your pies on Wednesday Nov. 21 from your designated pick up location.) Or you can order a Love-A-Client Raffle Pie (you'll automatically be entered into a raffle to win a new 64GB iPad) and still support Mama's Kitchen's clients! Now that's a sweet deal.
Are pie purchases tax-deductible?
Yes! $15 of each pie purchased is tax-deductible, and $20 of each Love-A-Client Raffle Pie is tax-deductible.
When is the last day I can order pies?
You can order your pies online until Sunday, November 18th at midnight. If you wish to order using a paper order form, you must order by Wednesday, November 14th.
Do I get anything for selling pies?
We award weekly incentive prizes to our individual Pie Sellers and Teams--so sign up and have fun with it! Get your team members competing with each other and with other teams!
Rather than buy a pie, I want to make a gift to Mama's Kitchen. Can I do this online?
Yes, just click the 'Make a Donation' link at the top of the homepage at www.mamaspies.org
If I can't make it to a pick-up location, what should I do?
A friend can pick up your pie for you with your order number. Unfortunately, we are unable to deliver the pie to you. If you neglect to pick up your pie, it will be donated to an individual or family who needs it. If you know ahead of time that you will be unable to pick up your pie, buy a pie for a Mama's Kitchen client!
