Evel Pie is joining more than 70 pizzerias across the U.S. in fighting child hunger. Participating pizzerias each feature a specialty pizza and donate $1 to No Kid Hungry for every featured pizza sold during May, 2017 (Evel Pie’s “Slice Out” slice – Photo credit: Hew Burney).
The campaign is called “Slice Out Special” and is produced by a NYC-based nonprofit called Slice Out Hunger, which supports hunger relief and prevention organizations through the American pizza community. Evel Pie will be featuring the “Slice Out” slice topped with fresh mozzarella, Fontina cheese, cherry tomatoes, sausage and red onion. One hundred percent of the proceeds from all pizzeria sales will benefit No Kid Hungry.
Slice Out Hunger is a New York City-based nonprofit run by pizza lovers and pizza industry professionals with a mission to support hunger relief initiatives by fundraising through the American pizza community. Since its inception in 2009, Slice Out Hunger has raised more than $160,000 for hunger relief. This is Slice Out Hunger’s first nationwide campaign.
No child should go hungry in America, but 1 in 6 kids will face hunger this year. Using proven, practical solutions, No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger today by ensuring that kids start the day with a nutritious breakfast and families learn the skills they need to shop and cook on a budget. When we all work together, we can make sure kids get the healthy food they need. No Kid Hungry is a campaign from national anti-hunger organization Share Our Strength.
