If you live in New York, you most likely love pizza. If you don’t, we don’t wanna hear about it. This love for pizza most likely extends to wondering how you can use it to make an impact for good in the world, and so the annual Slice Out Hunger is here to help. Just like in years past, this Wednesday you can pay $1 slice for pizza from the best pizzerias in the city and have a portion of those dollars go towards the Food Bank for New York City. It’s rare doing good gets to be this delicious.
Slice Out Hunger will go down on Wednesday, October 8 at St. Anthony’s Church (154 Sullivan Street), starting at 6pm and will go until the pizza runs out. You buy your tickets, $1 each, at the door when you show up and then you can exchange each ticket for a different slice of pizza from the pizzerias that show up. You can choose from some dang good ones, like Table 87, John’s of Bleecker, Emily’s, Fornino and Pizza Moto. Choose carefully though, you can only get one slice of pizza from each pizzeria and you can only buy 10 pizza tickets maximum. Though we’re impressed if you can eat 10 slices of pizza.
Beyond the pizza, there’ll also be a chance for you to enter a raffle and win pizza-themed items, like pizza T-shirts, a pizza making class from Pizza A Cassa, a gift certificate to Pauli Gee’s and more. Definitely enter the raffle, because beyond winning big, every dollar being spent at Slice Out Hunger will be matched by the deep-pocketed sponsors of the night. Last year, everyone raised $20,000 just by eating pizza, so if you spend more money this year, the night will raise more money.
