Little Caesars helps feed the hungry in Knoxville

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Victims of disaster, the hungry, and the homeless filled up on free pizza Saturday evening.

The Little Caesars Love Kitchen stopped in Knoxville to feed about 150 people at the Volunteer Ministry Center.

The project was started in 1985 to give back to local communities, while raising awareness.

"We're grateful for Little Caesars' support, but in some ways it acknowledges the issue that people are hungry, that people are having a difficult time," said Volunteer Ministry Center Chief Operating Officer Bruce Spangler.

The Love Kitchen is expected to feed more than 350 people on Sunday at the Knox Area Rescue Ministries.

Food and labor is donated by local Little Caesars franchisees and company market operators.

According to a new release, the Love Kitchen has served more than two million people in 48 states and three provinces in Canada.
