#MacShares Apple Pies!


On September 25, a community event was held in the McGill Food and Nutrition Labs – a day of apple pie baking! More than 80 volunteers turned out to peel, cut, roll dough, make and bake apple pies. The hundreds of pies baked were donated to Amcal Family Services, Corbeil de Pain/Bread Basket Lac-St-Louis, Share the Warmth and the NDG Food Bank – to help the organizations fill their freezers in time for Thanksgiving. Première Moisson graciously donated the pie pastry and the Tablée des Chefs, who are running a kitchen skills program for youth out of the Food and Nutrition labs this semester, dedicated a day of their program to make the pies that were served with ice cream to the participants at the end of the event. The Mac Farm provided the McIntosh apples; Dean Anja Geitmann generously provided the seed money to get the project off the ground.
