A huge part of Thanksgiving Day desert arrived at South Bend's Hope Rescue Mission today.
Notre dame students donated 50 homemade pumpkin pies to the feast.
The idea started as a social event at Pangborn hall on the Notre Dame Campus.
Students were going to make the pies and take them home to their families, but once they realized they did not need the pies.
They decided to donate them to the community. “On Sunday we had a large event at Notre dame in the dining hall, We had participants from several dorms on campus. We had about 50 people come in 2 shifts of 25 people, and each group made about 25 pumpkin pies, the executive chef gave a cooking lesson and it lasted about an hour for each group and it was really fun. It was a great time,” says Notre Dame student, Nancy McEvily.
About 800 people get their thanksgiving meal at Hope Rescue Mission.
The 50 pies donated today will feed about 400 of them.
