Uhuru Pies – The Taste of Freedom!
30 Years of bringing social justice home for the holidays
Uhuru Pies is a program of the African People's Education and Defense Fund.
The African Peoples Education and Defense Fund (APEDF) announces Uhuru Pies 2010, the 30th annual Uhuru Pies™ holiday sale fundraiser.
From November 19 – November 24, 2010 Uhuru Pies will offer five gourmet pie flavors on sale for $12 - $20 each in Northern California and the St. Petersburg Florida Bay Area. All proceeds benefit projects of sustainable black community economic development.
Remember – Uhuru Pies only available in November of 2010
In a measure to consolidate the many faceted efforts of Uhuru Pies and to enhance other aspects of the APEDF, including the December online auction and volunteer appreciation activities and events, Uhuru Pies will only be available in November, just prior to Thanksgiving.
To our wonderful December pie enthusiasts: we ask you to bring your appetite early this year! As we mobilize to get our pies everywhere, all-at-once, from Santa Cruz to Santa Rosa, we want everyone to know though the pies taste great – it is the cause that counts.
Everyone can play a role with Uhuru Pies !
