SALEM, Va. – Food allergies or a vegan lifestyle shouldn’t limit you from enjoying Pi Day’s tasty festivities.

In honor of the mathematics constant, 3.14159265359 known as pi, Saturday March 14th the bakery’s ovens will be filled with pies.

10 News reporter Megan Woods spent Thursday morning learning how owner Shana Brown, owner of Corbin’s Confections, makes sure those with food allergies don’t get left out.

Brown shares her personal passion behind allergy-friendly foods as she prepares the pie crust for the pan. You can hear her story here.
