Do you have a unique pie recipe that needs to be shared with the entire Capital Region?
In celebration of their 50th Anniversary Thanksgiving Community Dinner, Equinox is calling for local bakers and dessert makers to submit their favorite unique pie recipes for their first ever Thanksgiving Pie Recipe Contest. Three finalist recipes will be chosen from the pool of submissions and prepared by a professional baker. The top three recipes will be judged by a small panel of volunteer professional chefs and key community partners, who prepare the annual community dinner each year.
Recipes can be submitted by email or mail and must be received by September 30th. More information on the rules and how to submit recipes can be found here.
Nearly 50 years ago, a small group of community and religious leaders, students, and social workers held a Thanksgiving dinner for 200 college students who were not going home for the holiday and would have been alone. This marked the beginning of the Capital District's largest and longest-running holiday tradition. Today, the Annual Equinox Thanksgiving Day Community Dinner serves 10,000 of our lonely, homebound, or homeless neighbors with the help of thousands of volunteers.
