Haiti_Pies_smBaker Heidi Videto spent many early hours baking 221 all-butter crust, pumpkin pies from scratch. She can look to Andrea Donofrio, executive chef for FLIK, for that extra challenge. Andrea wanted to recognize and help her many Haitian colleagues on the dining staff. With FLIK’s support, Andrea launched a holiday pie sale. Proceeds from the sale will provide much-needed medical supplies for their homeland, still struggling from the effects of last winter’s earthquake. The dining team donated a portion of their staff appreciation funds toward buying the ingredients, and the Milton community responded.

Individuals donated 68 of these pies to local food banks, which faculty member Dar Anastas delivered in time for Thanksgiving. The $2,210 raised will go entirely toward life-saving medical supplies for the people of Haiti.
