Pizzas4Patriots

Pizzas 4 Patriots is a 501(c)(3) Tax Exempt nonprofit organization dedicated to serving a slice of home to those who serve.

Our mission is to comfort active service members, first responders and veterans by providing America’s favorite food while they’re far away from home, whether it be fighting on the front lines, providing humanitarian relief, or recovering in a veteran’s facility.

It is our continued goal to deliver a slice of pizza to active service members on the days our country celebrates the freedom that they continue to fight for: Memorial Day, The Fourth of July, Veteran’s Day, and Superbowl Sunday.

Master Sergeant Mark Evans joined the United States Air Force National Guard in 1979.  After growing up in a strong military family, Mark felt it was his patriotic duty to serve our country, and remained an active service member for the next twenty-six years.

After retirement, Master Sergeant Evans still felt a strong connection to his brothers and sisters-in arms.  He launched Pizzas 4 Patriots in an effort to remind active troops and wounded veterans that we appreciate their service on the holidays we celebrate our freedom.

Master Sergeant Evans, or Sergeant Pizza, as he is now known by U.S. Servicemen and women, has received several humanitarian awards and commendations for his charitable acts.

  ABOUT US

OUR MISSION

OUR HISTORY

Pizza 4 Patriots is continually looking at ways to provide the most pizza to as many soldiers as possible.  How we do that changes based on available supply.  While we have internalized the Logistics process; it is always our goal to provide pizza made with the highest quality ingredients, beginning with the buttery crust, which is partially baked until it’s golden and crisp, then generously slathered with delicious pizza sauce and layered with freshly grated mozzarella cheese.  The pizza is immediately flash frozen to seal in the flavor, then packaged and boxed on dry ice, ready to be shipped.

The pizza’s long journey begins on a truck, then by plane, to a military convoy, and is occasionally escorted by tanks, helicopters or other transportation as available until it finally reaches a forward operating military base far overseas, in the middle of an active war zone, many hours later.

Upon arrival, the pizza is cooked the rest of the way, until the cheese is deliciously melted, in an oven on base, grilled over a camp fire, or even on the hood of a humvee under the scorching Middle Eastern sun.

Each pizza feeds five soldiers, who have often only been eating boxed MRE’s for months on end, while they fight for our freedoms far from the home they’re protecting.

Our hope is that we can provide soldiers some comfort with a taste of home, by serving the best to the best that serve.

It is only through the generous financial support of individuals and organizations that Pizzas 4 Patriots is able to fulfill its mission. 


Thank you for your continued support!  DONATE TODAY

In June 2008, Master Seargent Mark Evans and his teenage son conceptualized Operation Slice of Home to show their appreciation for the troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, by shipping pizzas overseas on the 4th of July.

The initial goal was to raise enough funds to send three hundred pizzas, but through the generous support of individuals and our corporate partners, we were able to raise enough funds to ship over two thousand.

In the years since, Pizzas 4 Patriots has continued to grow with every new operation.  We have shipped over 160,000 pizzas to date, enabling us to feed over 650,000 soldiers and veterans around the world.
