Pizza vs. Pandemic: Pizza app, and two non-profits have teamed up to feed care workers and support local businesses

Food

NEW ORLEANS – Slice is an online and mobile ordering platform for local pizzerias. Slice Out Hunger is a non-profit that brings local pizzerias and the community together. Pizza to Polls is a nonprofit that delivers pizza to those waiting in long lines on election day. What happens when they team up? They launch Pizza vs. Pandemic, which has one special cause: feed care workers, and support small businesses.

Pizza vs. Pandemic is helping support those working around the clock by arranging for hundreds of pizzas from independent pizzerias to be sent to workers at care centers, hospitals, clinics, shelters, and more

Since launching, the initiative has already raised over $318K and has already delivered 7.8K pizza pies! Anyone from around the world can donate, and every dollar will help feed those putting their lives on the line. These pizza orders will also provide much-needed revenue to local New Orleans restaurants serving food to its community.
