One slice of patriotism, please.
Pizza to the Polls wants no voter to go hungry, having delivered over 38,804 pizzas to 1,684 polling places in 46 states this year. The nonprofit, nonpartisan group believes that “democracy is delicious” — so here’s how to score free food when voting in person.
A spokesperson confirmed in a statement to Fox News that hungry voters can tweet at Pizza to the Polls to report long lines at polling sites (with "extra points for sharing a photo") and confirm the location, and a nearby restaurant will deliver the food within about 90 minutes of the line being reported.
The group pledges to deliver pizza to "any polling place in the US, as long as we can find a delivery place that services that location” for its signature, on-demand program in all 50 states. From there, all are welcome to dig into the free ‘za – poll workers, poll watchers, voters, kids and anyone else on site.
In another patriotic pitch, the group has partnered with Uber Eats to operate a fleet of food trucks in 29 cities to celebrate civic engagement and deliver free eats from Oct. 29 to Nov. 3, the spokesperson said. To request a special delivery to a polling place, ballot casters can fill out an online form to be verified by Pizza to the Polls before a truck is deployed.
If you know your belly will be rumbling in line, the spokesperson confirmed that the trucks will be stopping in the following cities until Election Day: Phoenix, Ariz.; Los Angeles, Calif.; Washington, D.C.; Miami, Fla.; Tampa, Fla.; Orlando, Fla.; Gainesville, Fla.; Atlanta, Ga.; Chicago, Ill.; Indianapolis, Ind.; Louisville, Ky.; Detroit, Mich.; Ann Arbor, Mich.; Minneapolis, Minn.; Charlotte, N.C.; Raleigh, N.C.; Greensboro, N.C.; Las Vegas, Nev.; Reno, Nev.; New York, N.Y.; Cleveland, Ohio; Columbus, Ohio; Philadelphia, Pa.; Pittsburgh, Pa.; Charleston, S.C.; Nashville, Tenn.; Houston, Texas; Austin, Texas; and Milwaukee, Wis.
“For those in cities where trucks are not available, Pizza to the Polls will collaborate with local restaurants to deliver some snacks and good vibes,” the rep added.
Pizza to the Polls has proudly served up slices since 2016, but the organization feels its mission is more important than ever as voter enthusiasm surges across the country and polling sites adjust operations to heed coronavirus safety protocols this year.
