NEW YORK, Aug. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Once a year, NYC’s top pizzerias unite under one roof to raise money for New Yorkers in need at Slice Out Hunger’s $1 Slice Night. This annual charity event sells $1 pizza slices from famous pizzerias such as Difara, Lombardi’s, Keste, John’s Pizzeria, Arturo’s and more — most of which do not offer pizza by the slice. More than fifty pizzerias are expected to donate over 1,000 pizzas for this unique event that attracts over 1,000 attendees.
The event is volunteer run and each dollar raised is matched by the generosity of Slice Out Hunger sponsors. 100% of the event’s proceeds will benefit Food Bank For New York City.
“Pizza brings people together and it’s a real dream come true to see these pizzerias join together for one night to help their community,” says Scott Wiener, founder of Slice Out Hunger. “This pizza party will be a blast! But the true mission of Slice Out Hunger is to support hunger relief initiatives by fundraising through the American pizza industry.”
