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 ASU. 

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!
