Slice Out Hunger 2016
Wednesday, October 5, 2016
Slice Out Hunger (SOH) has raised over $110,000 to fund hunger relief since its first event in 2009. The idea was simple: use food donated by independent pizzerias to raise money for a local hunger relief organization with a proven track record. Slice Out Hunger's first event featured fifty pizzas from six different pizzerias and raised about $500. Six years later, SOH hosted New York's biggest pizza party featuring 1,200 pizzas from fifty of the city's top pizzerias, raising $40,000 in just three hours. The annual event has become an institution in New York City and has inspired cities around the country to host similar fundraisers. The size of the party continues to grow, but the focus has always been to highlight independent pizzerias while supporting those in our community who have trouble affording food for themselves and their families.
