The Pinjarra Bakery in Waroona has started a “random acts of pie-ness” initiative, to spread joy in these challenging times.

The community can nominate people who have gone above and beyond in their town and in return, the bakery will deliver a box of pies.

One of the team members, Jodie Pantaleo, said the simple project honoured the outstanding front line workers who have been working during COVID-19.

“We wanted to share the love and celebrate those selfless workers,” she said.

The recent recipients were the team at St Joseph’s Primary School in Waroona. One of the mums nominated the principal and all the teachers at the school and said they had done an “excellent job in facilitating online learning”.

The bakery rewarded the school teachers with pies for lunch last week.
