Take the Pie in the Eye Challenge!
Take a Pie in the Eye for the team: challenge your friends and family to either buy a pie or get pie-d in the face for Mama. Take a quick video (your smartphone makes it easy!) of you getting pie-d and post it on social media, asking your friends to do the same. (Don't forget to tag Mama's Kitchen.) Let them know that each pie sold provides eight nutritious meals for someone battling AIDS or cancer. Let's spread the word and help Mama continue to provide hundreds of thousands of meals each year to those in need.
