PROJECT PIZZA #2 - THANK YOU!
WE SOLD 422+ SLICES!
THAT MEANS FOOD FORWARD
WILL GET 46,420+ POUNDS OF
FOOD TO PEOPLE IN NEED!
Art! Pizza! Charity!
Join us on August 4th for the second Project Pizza online pop-up shop.
From 9AM to 9PM join artists Shing Yin Khor and Eron Rauch as they host a draw-a-thon featuring a dozen of their talented friends making art to fight hunger. The bounty of 2D pizza will be available in an online pop-up shop with all proceeds going to Food Forward. Preorders open August 3rd, so visit the menu at http://eronrauch.com/projectpizza and grab your slice (one random drawing), a whole pie (10), or even a party pack (30) to share with friends and co-workers.
100% of the profits from Project Pizza #2 are being donated to the awesome organization Food Forward. Combating both food waste and hunger, they travel to farmer’s markets, orchards, and wholesalers collecting the surplus bounty that would otherwise be thrown away. That peak-ripeness produce is then passed directly to hunger relief groups. Every $1 redirects about 11 pounds of food. So for every drawing sold, over 100 pounds of peaches, lettuce, or other delicious produce will be saved to nourish someone in need.
The party will be live-streamed at http://twitch.tv/videogamesforthearts. Drop in to watch Shing dream up toppings for 250 pizzas! Watch Eron probably set a real pizza on fire while he manages the stream! Will we have special guests? You bet we will! Every slice/drawing we sell helps immensely, so thanks in advance for spreading the word to all your food- and art-loving friends.
Participating artists include: Jeff Zugale (@jeffzugale), Jason Porath (@jasonporath), Rosie Marx & Co. (@rosiemarx), Nilah Magruder (@nillafle), Shing Yin Khor (@sawdustbear), Eron Rauch (@eron_rauch), Shannon Saar, Betsy Streeter, Kai (@kaidoesstuff), John Hogan (@thejohnhogan), Shannon Saar (@fristyplum) and more TBA.
Our fundraising goal is $5000, and if we hit that mark, we’ll help Food Forward finish strong in their new capital campaign to rent a whole warehouse at the produce market. This would be a huge improvement in their ability to help get food where it is needed most, so let’s all work hard together to hit our goal!
All the art, resources, and time for Project Pizza are donated with special thanks to local farmers Weiser Family Farms, Buon Gusto Farms, Drake Family Farms, and Tutti Frutti Farms for providing the ingredients used to power the artists with pizza.
