Last Wednesday thirty-two pizzerias, sixty volunteers and over 700 pizza lovers joined forces to raise $12,800 for City Harvest, NYC’s premier food collection organization. Approximately 475 pizzas were delivered from all five boroughs to St Anthony’s Church in Soho to be sold for $1 per slice. Funds were matched by Seamless and Scott’s Pizza Tours with 100% of proceeds going directly to City Harvest. The funds raised will help rescue and deliver 51,200 pounds of food to NYC’s homeless and hungry.
National Pizza Month + Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Scott’s Pizza Tours will be donating 10% of October public tour sales to the Slice of Hope campaign to support October’s position as both National Pizza Month and National Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Slice Of Hope is the pizza industry’s call to arms for pizzerias across the country to unite in an effort to fight breast cancer by donating a percentage of October 12 sales to the Karen Mullen Breast Cancer Foundation. This organization was started by the good folks at Pizza Today Magazine, who have made it their goal to raise $140,000 during this year’s campaign.
If your local pizzeria is participating, please support the effort by grabbing a couple pies on October 12. If they aren’t participating, they can sign up here.
