7th Annual MLK PEACE through PIE Community Event & Fundraiser

January 14, 2023 @ 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM


Join us for 

Beauty’s Community Garden’s 7th Annual MLK PEACE through PIE Community Event & Fundraiser, where we continue the focus on celebrating the work of Dr. King’s legacy toward a harmonious place at the table for all.  This year’s theme is pulled from one of his quotes, “Intelligence plus character–that is the goal of true education.”

This event jumpstarts Beauty’s Community Garden’s funding campaign that runs until February 28th.  All funds raised help to support our year-round programs.

Attendees will enjoy entertainment, free food, pie stories, pie sampling, and chances to vote on the best pies. Also included are chances to win prizes, receive giveaways, and attend two sessions of Garden and Healthy Cooking Workshops–Spanish translators are available for some workshops (listed below).

Event Made Possible By

We appreciate the support of all participants.

Beauty's Community Garden is located at 3201 Airline @ E. 32nd Street, in Independence Heights–the first African American municipality in Texas.  Our mission is to close the gap on food inequities and achieve a community culture of health and well-being. Our programs, events and educational materials focus on breaking the cycle of food insecurity, poor nutrition, and the resulting health outcomes people experience who have poor access to fresh produce. These communities are called food deserts, and our garden is located in one of forty plus food deserts in Houston. We are committed to transforming lives through showing the connections between growing foods and their nutritional impact on health, wellbeing and life's possibilities.
