'Pizzas 4 Patriots' Helps Troops Party for Super Bowl

Ad Feedback

A Chicago pizzeria wants to make sure U.S. troops overseas have everything they need for a perfect Super Bowl party Sunday.

Gino's East will send 10,000 frozen, deep-dish pizzas to American soldiers in the Middle East just in time for the big game. The effort is part of the "Pizzas 4 Patriots" initiative.

Restaurant owner and retired Air Force Master Sergeant Mark Evans started sending troops pizza four years ago when his son asked whether G.I.s ever got to eat pizza from home.

A record 28,000 pizzas were sent for various occasions in 2009.

This year, DHL has volunteered its delivery services and American dairy farmers are also on board to send 7,000 bottles of milk and 500 footballs to various bases in Iraq.
