Pizza for the Hungry creates moments of joy in homeless shelters/kitchens/missions through pizza parties with live music. For just $1, you can sponsor 2 slices and live music and create gladness for a person in need. Picture the pizza parties with stacks of hot, fresh pizzas rolling in, music playing in the shelters and cheers, laughter and smiles: and a Smile brings Hope. Pizza for the Hungry throws parties for 1 week every June. But only with your help: Please donate! Even $1 makes a direct difference!
Started in June 2007, Pizza for the Hungry empowers both the donor and the recepient:
- the donor makes a direct difference for a person in need by feeding the body (pizza) and feeding the soul (music)
- the recipient is empowered by the hope and inspiration that is created by the donors and volunteers
