Justice of the Pies is a bakery that specializes in sweet and savory pies, quiches and tarts.
Maya-Camille Broussard established Justice of the Pies in honor of her late father, Stephen J. Broussard. Steve, who dubbed himself the Pie Master, was a criminal defense attorney with a passion for baking and eating anything made with a crust!
Justice of the Pies was created to celebrate his love for pies and to honor his belief that everyone deserves an opportunity to reform their lives.
Justice of the Pies is committed to delivering amazing pies, quiches and tarts while positively impacting the lives of those who work for us.
Formed as an L3C, Justice of the Pies considers itself to be a social mission in a culinary art form. Our goal is to positively impact the lives of those who work with us.
The bakery has previously partnered with DreamOn Education to activate the I KNEAD LOVE Workshop. The one-day workshop provides elementary-aged children from lower-income communities instruction on nutritional development, acquiring basic cooking skills, and encouraging creativity in the kitchen. The primary goal of this program is to contribute to efforts in ending food insecurities.
Justice of the Pies also partners with the Cabrini Green Legal Aid (CGLA). CLGA was created to serve legal needs arising from the lack of opportunity, criminalization of poverty, and racial inequity experienced within the Cabrini Green community. Since then, CGLA has grown beyond a single neighborhood to become a citywide, countywide, and now recognized statewide leader in supporting low-income individuals negatively impacted by the criminal justice system. Justice of the Pies and CGLA collaborate on a yearly “pie drive” to raise money for the organization.
Justice of the Pies is committed to providing decency and equality while consistently seeking ways in which it can be a steward for fairness.
