WORCESTER – For math geeks and pie lovers, March 14 marks a particularly special day. It’s Pi Day, and Worcester’s Table Talk Pies is ready to embrace its tasty role in the celebration.
Pi Day recognizes the numerical day, 3-14, and its similarity to the numbers that represent pi, 3.14 (ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter).

Worcester-based Table Talk Pies will hand out more than 60,000, 4-inch snack pies to 150 school in Worcester in honor of Pi Day Wednesday. But non-school pie lover can also get in the fun by buying strawberry pies at the company’s retail store, 153 Green St., where one lucky customer will find a “Golden Ticket” good for a one-year membership to the Museum of Science in Boston.

Why Celebrate National π Day?
At the American Pie Council, we love learning! So what could be better
than a whole day dedicated to learning about pi and enjoying a slice of
pie? Nothing much comes to mind.
We think everyone should be included in Pi(e) Day festivities! Bake a
pie with your friends, classmates, or family to celebrate the wonders of
pie! Decorate the pie with pi designs! Take some extra time to focus on
math. Do some extra practice problems to make sure you’re ready for
your next test. Help a friend or classmate with some hard problems.
Math will get you far in the pie world—Linda Hoskins, executive
director of the American Pie Council, was a math major in college!
