    Pie. Glorious, glorious pie.

    It's November and that means it's time to order a pie from Mama's Kitchen. 

    Thousands of caring San Diegans gladly shell out $20 for a Pecan, Apple, sugar-free Apple or Pumpkin pie each year. 

    They do so knowing they'll not only get to enjoy a special treat come Thanksgiving Day but in the process help Mama's Kitchen help out those in need.

    This is the 21st year this grass-roots non-profit has sold pies to raise money to help those with HIV or cancer.
