News from the November 9th Pie Marathon

For the fourth year in a row, a group of volunteers gathered at the Kingston Council on Aging on Nov. 9 to make 120 apple pies and 23 apple-cranberry crisps for families served by the Greater Plymouth Food Distribution Center.

We are grateful to Trucchi’s Supermarkets for underwriting some of the costs of this program and South Shore Organics for donating apples as well as a van to transport the pies.
