Upcoming Events

Pie in the Sky
Have you heard of Pie in the Sky? It’s Community Servings’ annual Thanksgiving fundraiser that raises funds to feed individuals and families struggling with critical and chronic illnesses. Last year, Team CSYL sold 394 pies, raising $11,000 for Community Servings. This year, the Team hopes to raise $12,000, but needs more Pie Sellers to join its ranks!

Why should you sign up?

  • It’s as easy as pie.  (Sorry, couldn’t help ourselves.) But it’s true. We make it easy by providing you with social media graphics and sample posts, e-cards, printable flyers – anything you could need to sell pies.
  • No minimum required. Unlike some fundraisers that require you to raise a minimum amount, Pie in the Sky welcomes all Pie Sellers – whether you sell 2 or 20 pies. Every pie makes a difference.
  • It’s fun. It’s not called the “World’s Greatest Bake Sale” for nothing! In addition to selling pies to coworkers, family, and neighbors, you can also sign up for volunteer shifts with friends and other CSYL members.

Sign up as a Pie Seller today and join Team CSYL.

Pies & Pints: Thursday, November 8th, 6-8:30pm @ Ned Devines

Join “Team CSYL” for a Pie in the Sky Party – bring your friends to celebrate this incredible fundraiser, and purchase your pies for Thanksgiving! Each pie you buy provides a week’s worth of nutritious meal for a Community Servings’ client.

Light appetizers, and of course, PIE will be provided! Cash bar.

Link to RSVP coming soon!

6th Annual Food is Medicine Symposium
Join the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation of Harvard Law School, the Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic, and Community Servings while we share and discuss the latest research and advocacy efforts from the Food is Medicine movement nation-wide. We’ll present initial data and results from the first-in-the-nation Food is Medicine statewide plan, and take an in-depth look at newly published research demonstrating the cost savings and improved health outcomes of critically ill patients receiving medically tailored meals.

Visit the Eventbrite page for the list of speakers.

Following the Symposium, CSYL attendees are invited to join us nearby at Cambridge Common for a facilitated discussion and networking opportunity. RSVP.
