Peace of the Pie 5K...

  • 5K Run / Walk:- Run 3.1 Miles
Sunday, October 2, 2016
Tempe Kiwanis Park
6111 S All America Way

Join us for the inaugural Peace of the Pie 5K as we race to

raise money to purchase fresh, local produce to be

donated to St. Mary's Food Bank

for families looking for healthier, more nutritious choices

in their everyday diets.



All food will be purchased and supplied from Crooked Sky Farms and

Farmer Frank Martin.  On average, CSF has an excess of 3,000lbs of

surplus veggies from their farms, which will be delivered to St. Mary's

Food Bank on behalf of The Peace of the Pie donations. Also included

in the donations will be healthier choices, such as

quinoa, brown rice, legumes, etc so our less fortunate neighbors can

make healthier meals for their families. 

Along with the food, we will be providing YouTube videos showing how

to prepare these veggies, etc. from Chef Lou Swartz, as well as other

local celebrity chefs.  And, recipes including nutritional values, courtesy

of Chrissy Barth, who has her Masters in Nutrition and is a professor at



After the race, grab your medal and head over to the pie booth and

take a pie in the face for charity!  Completely optional of course, but

where is the fun in that? 

We will also have 2 food trucks there for our first 'Battle of the Trucks'.

Each racer will be given a food voucher for 1 breakfast item from one

truck of their choosing. The truck with the most vouchers at the end will

win the battle and bragging rights till the next race!
