A fun fundraiser for Farmers Helping Farmers –

UPEI Applied Human Sciences students (Foods and Nutrition and Kinesiology) host the first annual “Pie your Prof” on Pi day.   Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world and is an opportunity for math enthusiasts to recite the infinite digits of Pi, talk to their friends about math, and to eat Pie.

Student in AHS programs created a new version of 'eating Pie' and decided to host a fundraising event "Pie your Prof”.  Faculty were well pie’d during the event  and lots of laughs were had by all! The students voted for proceeds from the fundraiser to be contributed to Farmers Helping Farmers to support the work with Kenyan farmers.

The student have decided to allocate the  $140 raised to donate books for a school library, purchase vegetable seeds for a garden and a bag to grow vegetables on small plot of land.
