Sweet Potato Comfort Pie: 7th Annual Martin Luther King Service Holiday
January 17 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
Sweet Potato Comfort Pie 7th Annual MLK Holiday of Service: Amplify Our Love with Pie. Mark your calendar for our free virtual event!
Our celebration will mark the 92nd birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Due to the nature of the pandemic, this year will be a bit different. The main event will be held online, and we will offer Sweet Potato Comfort pie pick up at Breck School on Sunday and Monday, so that people can distribute pies into the community. Please register soon so that we can have a proper headcount for all of the festivities
We will distribute 92 pies to honor Dr. King, with the simple, but powerful act of preparing and sharing sweet potato pie as a revered practice for comforting one another and strengthening our human connection. There will be performances in the spirit of Ubuntu to remind us that each one of us is who we are because of our beloved community.
The online event will take place from 2 to 4:30 pm on Sunday, January 17th.
If you would like to contribute to this work, donations can be made as you register – or on the ‘Donate’ Page.
