There is a very exciting thing happening in Memphis: The Mem-Pie project.

A Memphis local is “pie-ing it forward”. He made eight pies, put them each in a PieBox and gave them to eight different friends over the holidays. But this much loved gift came with very specific instructions:

  1. Enjoy the delicious homemade pie
  2. Make a new pie
  3. Put it in the PieBox 
  4. Write your name and date on the box lid
  5. Give it to a new friend with the same instructions

The recipients were thrilled and eager to continue the gesture. If you receive one of these PieBoxes, you will know immediately. Not only is there are list of who has had the PieBox, there are fun little sayings written all over.

Thank you Memphis for starting this fun initative And if you do receive one, we want to know… send a picture or a story. We would love to see where each end up.
