The Little Caesars Love Kitchen rolled into the Charlotte Men’s Shelter on Monday, October 20 to serve hot and ready pizzas to more than 350 men.
The large rig travels across the county to feed the hungry, homeless and disaster survivors. Volunteers from local franchises helped make 120 pizzas in a few hours. All of the supplies and labor came from local restaurants.
“It’s a real treat to have Little Caesars come out and support us,” said Bob Breed, Kitchen Manager at Men’s Shelter of Charlotte. “It helps keep food costs down and shows the guys the community is behind them.”
About half the pizzas were served to men at the North Tryon campus, where the traveling kitchen made its stop. The remaining pizzas were delivered and served to clients at the Statesville Avenue campus, about two miles away.
The Men’s Shelter of Charlotte is seeking additional restaurants to help prepare meals for the men at the shelter. If you would like to help, please contact Jennifer Coates, Community Resource Coordinator at Jennifer.Coates@MensShelterofCharlotte.org.
