Little Caesars’ Love Kitchen visited the pizza chain’s hometown of Detroit to provide hot meals to people in need during February and March. The mobile food truck provided meals at several Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries locations, the Salvation Army, Central United Methodist Church, St. Patrick Center, SAY Detroit, Boys & Girls Club, Michigan Veterans Foundation, Capuchin Soup Kitchen and COTS. In all, the food truck served nearly 5,500 meals to Detroiters.
The Love Kitchen has served nearly 4 million people in the 48 contiguous states and four Canadian provinces. It was established in 1985.
“It’s important to us to reach out to the communities where we do business and help make a difference, especially in our hometown,” David Scrivano, president and CEO of Little Caesars, said in the press release. “Food insecurity impacts many in our city, and the Love Kitchen helps to provide meals to those in need. We are proud to work together with our local franchisees and company-owned stores to be there for the people who need assistance and build on our legacy of community service.”
Local Little Caesars franchise owners and company regional offices donate all food and labor costs for the Love Kitchen servings. An estimated 50,000 Little Caesars franchise owners and employees have volunteered their time over the years to support the program in their local communities.
Little Caesars is headquartered in Detroit, Michigan and has stores in each of the 50 U.S. states and 27 countries and territories.
