Uhuru Pies is a fundraising program of the African People's Education and Defense Fund, Inc.

The African People's Education & Defense Fund strives to develop and institutionalize programs to defend the human and civil rights of the African community, and to address the grave disparities in education, health, healthcare, and economic development faced by the African community.


For Thanksgiving, Uhuru Pies are sold throughout Northern California by individuals and organizations who are interested in a socially responsible holiday experience.

Anyone interested can sell delicous homestyle healthy pies to their friends, coworkers, neighbors. Give them as gifts to your clients, supploiers or employees.

2011 represenets the completion of 30 years of Uhuru Pies - a Bay Area progressive holiday tradition. Join our 31st Annual pie sale. Help sell 3,500 pies in Northern California and 500 pies in the St. Pete/Tampa Bay Area.

Each Thanksgiving, volunteers bake and sell Uhuru Pies to support APEDF programs for economic development.

Throughout the year a volunteer team does outreach and promotion to get ready for the big sale. Another team contacts businesses and farmers for donations of ingredients.
