Little Caesars to feed hungry Saturday

little-caesars

The Little Caesars Love Kitchen will roll into the Salvation Army to provide fresh Little Caesars pizza meals for about 325 people in need Saturday.

“The Love Kitchen was created to provide quality meals for people who need them,” said Little Caesars Tyler franchisee Jill Miller in the written release. “As a member of the area business community, it’s important for us to support people when they need it and help make the community stronger. We’re excited to support this program with food and staff to provide a quality meal for people who otherwise may not get one.”

A pizza kitchen on wheels, the Little Caesars Love Kitchen travels across the continental United States and Canada meeting the needs of the hungry, the homeless and disaster survivors.

The Little Caesars Love Kitchen has fed more than 2 million people in 48 states and four Canadian provinces. It has also responded to disasters such as recent tornadoes in Oklahoma, hurricanes on the Eastern Seaboard and on the Gulf Coast, the site of the World Trade Center attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and the 1995 Federal Building bombing in Oklahoma City. It was established by Little Caesars in 1985.

“We know that it’s important to reach out to the communities where we do business and help make a difference,” said David Scrivano, president and CEO of Little Caesars Inc. in the written release. “As a family company, we are proud to work together with our local franchisees and company-owned stores to coordinate the vehicle, staff and food and to be there for the people in Tyler who need assistance.”

Former Presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush awarded The President’s Volunteer Action Award to Little Caesars for its volunteers’ contributions to the Love Kitchen. Little Caesars also received a Presidential Citation for Private Sector Initiatives for the Love Kitchen program under the Reagan administration. It has received a certificate of appreciation from the State of Michigan and was recognized by the Detroit City Council.

Local Little Caesars franchise owners and company regional offices donate all food and labor costs for the Love Kitchen servings.

An estimated 50,000 Little Caesars franchise owners and employees have volunteered their time over the years to support the program in their local communities.

A thank you to our generous partners

Since May 19, thanks to the generosity and sacrifice of our partners, supporters and countless volunteers, The Salvation Army has been able to provide 44,878 meals, 63,678 drinks, and 55,867 snacks to tornado survivors in Oklahoma.

This kind of service is made possible in large part by The Salvation Army’s corporate partners. We would like to extend our sincere to Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Little Ceasers, Chick-Fil-A and Papa John’s Pizza who have helped us feed survivors, volunteers, first responders, and other emergency personnel via donations and mobile kitchens.

Last Sunday, our friends at Papa John’s- called upon pizza lovers across the country to support the communities of Moore and El Reno, Oklahoma in their recovery from the destructive storms by asking customers to donate $1 of every food order, towards The Salvation Army’s recovery efforts. We are thrilled to announce that $400,000 was raised that day in support of our relief efforts in Oklahoma.

Additionally, the company’s mobile pizza kitchen, served over 10,000 pizzas to the survivors and first responders. They were also kind enough to deliver hundreds of pizzas from local franchises to residents and aid workers.

Thank you, America, for teaming up with Papa John’s Pizza to make this donation possible! We are beyond thankful to everyone’s continuous generosity, support and partnership in Doing The Most Good.
