Thanksgiving isn't very far away now and in just a few weeks families and friends will be gathering together to celebrate. And in Lubbock, some of those celebrations will include pies that they were able to get free from Lubbock's Meals on Wheels and the Easy as Pie Fundraiser.

The 31st Annual "Feed a Friend... It's as Easy as Pie" fundraiser hosted by Lubbock Meals on Wheels kicks off on November 9th and runs through November 23rd. For a $5.00 donation, you will get a coupon for a free pie that you can redeem just in time for Thanksgiving or later in the year.

According to EverythingLubbock.com, the Easy as Pie fundraiser will kick-off with a pie-eating contest.

For a $5 donation, participants will receive a free Mrs. Smith’s pie coupon. Donations can be made at the Lubbock Meals on Wheels office at 2304 34th Street.

There will also be a pie-eating contest in which local community leaders and celebrities will participate.

The contest will be on Wednesday, November 9 at 12:00 p.m. at the United Supermarkets at 114th Street and Slide Road and will be aired live on the KLBK newscast, the press release said.

Speaking of the pie-eating contest, KFYO's Matt Martin won last year's contest and it's possible he will be back to defend his crown.

According to the home's website, construction began in 1887 by Rev. Thomas A. Broad. "Broad was a popular Methodist pastor whose sermons “showed deep thought and a familiarity with important scientific discoveries,” according to the Mason County News. However, he became better known in Mason for his second occupation as a stonecarver and builder. His work featured ornate carved limestone that contrasted with the darker sandstone."

The home has a rich history and in 1974, it received a historical marker on the National Register of Historic Places.
