What is Pie of Origin

Pie of Origin is a competition that runs alongside the State of Origin, with bakers from New South Wales and Queensland baking for a cause.

The aim of the competition is for teams in each state to bake and sell pies to raise funds for their charity during the origin series.

This year Rob Pirina and the team at Glenorie Bakery are ready to turn up the ovens and bake up a sweat for our kids to buy three intensive care beds for the Children’s Hospital at Westmead (Valued at $33,000).

With Rugby League Legends Nathan Hindmarsh, Paul Dunn, Mario Fenech and Mark Geyer along with scores of Junior League players from the Rouse Hill Rhinos already showing their support it is looking to be the strongest starting line up ever for the NSW.

It’s easy for everyone to get involved. Buy any pie from Glenorie Bakery this Origin series and $1 from every sale will be directly donated to the Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

Since the start of the Pie of Origin in 2012 this annual event has raised nearly $100,000 supporting victims of the Queensland floods and for the last few years supporting The Children’s Hospital at Westmead & the Children’s Hospital Foundation Brisbane.

Rob and the team are currently searching Queensland for bakers who are game to take on Glenorie Bakery in the 2018 Pie of Origin.
