New York – October 15, 2014 – Fifty of NYC’s top pizzerias assembled under one roof on October 9th to raise money for Food Bank For New York City. More than 1,200 pizzas were sold, along with other food and drink provided by local companies. Funds raised at the event were matched by micro-blogging Web site Tumblr, Brooklyn-based restaurant distributor Joseph Campagna and Sons, Scott’s Pizza Tours and Ferrarelle Italian water. The grand total raised by the event was over $30,000, 100 percent of which benefits Food Bank For New York City.
This year marked the sixth annual Slice Out Hunger event. The money raised will help deliver 150,000 meals to New Yorkers in need.
“We’re experiencing a major trend of treating food as entertainment, we do that with pizza tours, but we’re also deeply aware that 2.6 million New Yorkers have difficulty affording food. Slice Out Hunger is our way of using the momentum of food obsession to do some good for people in our community,” says SOH founder and organizer Scott Wiener, an award-winning columnist for Pizza Today.
Participating pizzerias included Difara, Lombardi’s, Keste Pizza & Vino, John’s Pizzeria, Arturo’s, Lucali, NY Pizza Suprema, Patrizia’s, Table 87, Sottocasa, Goodfellas, Rubirosa, Gnocco, Pizza Moto, Two Boots and dozens more.
