Slice Out Hunger, the nation’s foremost pizza nonprofit, just launched a new pizza-initiative called Pie it Forward and they need your help!


What?

Pie it Forward is an ongoing project that is designed to get pizza to the nation’s food insecure by setting up deliveries to soup kitchens, food banks, free meal programs, senior centers, clinics, and hunger action centers. As a virtual volunteer, you would be assigned hunger action centers to contact by phone so you can work with them on the logistics of what day and time will be best for a delivery.


When?

This is an ongoing project so we’ve divided the year up into roughly quarterly sessions. They ask that you commit 2 or more hours on weekdays (those hours can and should be broken up into 30-45 min intervals throughout the week) for one or more of the following sessions:

  • Session II - March 13 - June 4
  • Session III - May 29 - Aug 27
  • Session IV - Aug 21 - Nov 19

Onboarding sessions to get you up to speed on making calls and moving requests through our project management system will be offered on Zoom the first week of each session.


Who can volunteer?

They welcome all volunteers 18 years or older. This is a virtual project so all you need is access to a phone and computer!


Where?

Since this is a virtual project, it can be done from your home, your favorite coffee shop, the park at the end of your block, or anywhere! So long as you have access to a phone, computer, and WIFI, you’re all set!

Mission Statement

Slice Out Hunger produces pizza-related events and campaigns to support hunger relief and prevention initiatives.

Description

Slice Out Hunger is a volunteer-driven nonprofit that has raised over $1,000,000 to fund hunger relief efforts around the US since 2009. The founding principal was simple: use food donated by independent pizzerias to raise money for local hunger relief organizations. We started with a $1 Pizza Party that featured a handful of pizzerias and raised about $500. Ten years later, our 2019 event raised $75,000 for Citymeals on Wheels in NYC. Slice Out Hunger's $1 Pizza Party has become an annual event and continues to inspire cities around the country to host similar events, but we’ve expanded our reach across the U.S. with events and campaigns that benefit hunger relief in all 50 states.

Our organization thrives on fast mobilization and that has allowed us to spring into action when help is needed. We launched Slice Out Special to raise money for No Kid Hungry, Toppings for Texas to fund the Houston food bank after hurricane Harvey, and Pizza Across America to assist homeless shelters in the cold winter months. In March 2020, we teamed up with Slice and Pizza to the Polls to create Pizza Vs: Pandemic, our campaign to send pizza to frontline healthcare workers and first responders across the country.
