Pair of Little Caesars’ big rigs dedicated to charity

Tractor-trailers are tasked with providing goods and supplies to the communities that need them. While this is typically for commercial use, Little Caesars dedicates two of its big rigs to pizzas with charity in mind.

The pizza company equipped two of its trucks, which are called “the Little Caesars Love Kitchen,” with pizza ovens. The operation started in 1985 and serves communities in need 365 days a year. Two drivers are assigned to each truck.

According to the Little Caesars website, the mobile restaurants have served more than 3 million people and 6 million slices of pizza in the United States and Canada.

The mobile kitchens travel to areas that have been affected by hurricanes and tornadoes, as well as to such places as soup kitchens, Boys and Girls Clubs, food banks, rescue missions and homeless shelters.

Earlier this week, The Richmond Standard reported that one Little Caesars Love Kitchen served 275 people at the Bay Area Rescue Mission in California.
