We're excited to let you know that Scott Wiener of Scott's Pizza Tours is once again putting together the annual Slice Out Hunger charity event. Proceeds go to City Harvest. Tokens are sold at the door and cost $1, each one redeemable for any one of a slice of pizza, a Fizzy Lizzy soda, or a raffle ticket. And we're equally excited to let you know that Serious Eats will be a part of the event this year —we'll be there volunteering, donating items for the raffle, and eating a few slices, of course!
What's so exciting about this event is that some of New York's very best pizzerias donate pies for the occasion—so you can get a slice of Di Fara next to a sliver of a Neapolitan pie from Keste, next to Luzzo's and Lombardi's and John's and many more. $5 could get you quite a pizza tour of the city for a single dinner. And don't worry if you can't finish every last bite because GreenBox pizza boxes, the nifty ones that double as a plate, will be donating boxes for the event. And since all proceeds go directly to the charity, and Scott's Pizza Tours matches all donations dollar-for-dollar, it's a big fundraiser for City Harvest.
Slice Out Hunger will happen Wednesday, October 10, 2012 (plenty of time to get it on your calendar!) in the lower room of St. Anthony's Church on the corner of Sullivan and Houston. Last year, more than 200 pizzas disappeared in two hours —and this year, Scott's anticipating even more pizzas and an even bigger turnout. Check out the website here.
If you're a pizzeria or someone who just wants to help, Scott's looking for more pizza donations, as well as raffle prizes, matching donors, pizza servers, etc. Interested in volunteering to help the event come together? Email Scott Wiener to get involved.
