Seventeen local volunteers gathered on Sunday in the United Church of Hardwick kitchen and dining hall to prepare 60 apple pies for the Hardwick Area Food Pantry Thanksgiving food boxes. The apple pie project began in 2007, with Girl Scout Troop 674 and leaders Anne McPherson and Jodi Lew-Smith. In 2010, and for the past 11 years, 15 different families have participated in the Family Pies Project. Jennifer Fliegelman has organized the group since 2017. The dough for the pie crusts was made and donated by Charlie Emers of Patchwork Bakery, apples were donated from Burtt’s Orchards in Cabot, with supplemental donations by Sweetgrass Farm.
