Healthcare workers are risking their personal wellbeing to assist those who are in need of assistance right now. Without their willingness to put their own bodies on the line, we shudder to think of what would be happening at the moment and we owe them a massive debt of gratitude and wish that there was a way to pay them back.
While this idea might seem like a drop in the bucket, it is one way to show your appreciation. A pizza delivery app and various nonprofit organizations that focus on pizza delivery are providing healthcare workers with a much-needed pick me up. They are going to be providing free pizza to these workers and if you would like to contribute, the process is simple.
The movement is known as Pizza vs Pandemic. Pizza to the Polls, the Slice, and Slice Out Hunger are collaborating to provide the necessary mobile ordering platform, which can also be accessed online. All you have to do is make a 100% tax-deductible donation on this website.
We are SO close to hitting the $100k mark! So far we've sent 2,435 pizzas to hospital workers across the country and we don't plan on slowing down. Donate at https://t.co/OxdKc4ubnm #cantstoppizza #pizza4good #pizzavspandemic

From there, your funds are used to order food from local pizzerias with the Slice app. After the order has been placed, local shelters, clinics, and hospitals are provided with free eats. It can be tough for workers to find a hot and delicious meal when they are in the midst of saving lives. Slice Out Hunger has already delivered nearly 3,000 pizzas to these workers and your donation remains meaningful.
The benefits of this initiative go well beyond assisting healthcare workers as well. Local businesses are suffering immensely right now, as more and more people are opting to cook at home. You cannot blame them for remaining cautious, but it leaves local restaurants in a very tough bind. Thanks to these donations, pizza shops are able to remain in business as we wait out the coronavirus pandemic.
So far we’ve delivered 1,470 pizzas to healthcare workers on the front lines. Let’s keep going! #cantstoppizza #pizzavspandemic pic.twitter.com/CcwV7ZSvZQ
