800 Minced Pies for the homeless in London

A group of volunteers got together on Dec 14 to make 800 minced pies that were distributed in central London to the homeless and the needy by friends from Food for Life. Fantastic community spirit of making, baking and wrapping together. We were aiming at 1008 and ended up with a respectable 800!
