What a “sweet” program today as we welcomed Debveda Berry-Moore, owner and CBO (Chief Baking Officer) of one of our new Taste of Elizabeth vendors, Lumpasugah!



Debveda told us the inspirational story of how she started her artisan pie company, and how quickly the business has grown. Lumpasugah was a term of endearment of her father Deacon David Berry, who’s pies were a favorite of his family and congregation. Debveda carried on the tradition and the rest as they say is history!



President Bob Tombs welcomed Debveda who brought samples of her incredible pies for us to sample. You can try them for yourself at Taste of Elizabeth on October 19th or if you can’t wait, order them at www.lumpasugah.com
