Buying a traditional holiday pie this month will help feed those in need as well.
Mac’s Fish and Chip Shop in Santa Barbara is now making pies that are like a complete turkey dinner.
Each one is loaded with mixed vegetables, roasted turkey, stuffing and topped with parsnip mashed potatoes.
They cost $7.50 each with $5.00 of that going directly to the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County.
Owner Grant MacNaughton says it’s “deceptively filling.” Each pie weighs in at over a pound, “and it contains everything I associate with a Thanksgiving meal here in the U.S. or a Christmas meal back in London,” he said.
The Foodbank’s Misha Karbelnig says, “It ties in well with our focus on health. The pie has some much delicious produce in it. Half of what we put out last year had fresh produce in it. It is a unique opportunity to showcase what we do and how Mac’s and others are huge supporters of us.”
The holiday pies can be enjoyed at the restaurant, and also taken cooked or uncooked – to go – for home parties.
Mac’s is at 503 State St. near Haley.
