About Us

Slice Out Hunger is a volunteer-driven nonprofit that has raised over $1,000,000 to fund hunger relief efforts around the US since 2009. The founding principle was simple: use food donated by independent pizzerias to raise money for local hunger relief organizations. We started with a $1 Pizza Party that featured a handful of pizzerias and raised about $500. Ten years later, our 2019 event raised $75,000 for Citymeals on Wheels in NYC.


Our organization thrives on fast mobilization and that has allowed us to spring into action when help is needed. We launched Slice Out Special to raise money for No Kid Hungry, Toppings For Texas to fund the Houston food bank after Hurricane Harvey in 2017 and again in late winter of 2021 during the severe winter storms, and Pizza Across America to assist homeless shelters in the cold winter months. In March 2020, we teamed up with Slice and Pizza to the Polls to create Pizza Vs Pandemic, our campaign to send pizza to frontline healthcare workers and first responders across the country. The campaign raised over $250k in its first two weeks.


Pizza is a $42 billion industry in the U.S. Let's face it, we're obsessed. Slice Out Hunger founder Scott Wiener tapped into pizza fever when he launched Scott's Pizza Tours in 2008. Over 75,000 tourists, locals, pizza lovers, and pizza professionals have since attended excursions to significant New York pizzerias with the company. Food tours are fun ways to experience a city, but treating food as entertainment is a luxury that too many people cannot afford. Slice Out Hunger became a way to harness the momentum of our collective pizza obsession to effectively support those who have trouble meeting their own basic food needs.
