UT students to make 1,000 pizzas to fight hunger

The University of Toledo Catholic Student Association will make more than 1,000 pizzas in less than 20 minutes to donate to Toledo area shelters, food banks and soup kitchens.

Campus H.E.A.T., which stands for Hunger Elimination Amongst Toledoans, will start at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 29 in the Student Union Auditorium.

Nearly 300 students are expected to form pizza assembly lines for the annual tradition, which requires 250 pounds of pizza sauce and 500 pounds of shredded mozzarella cheese.

“We plan to fill up a lot of freezer space for charities,” said UT sophomore Johnathan Fife, co-chair of the committee organizing Campus H.E.A.T.  “Last year, we made 1,000 pizzas in 13 minutes and 30 seconds. It’s our way of giving back and helping the impoverished in our community.”

“Sofo Foods donates all of the crusts, sauce, cheese and toppings for the pizzas,” Pam Meseroll, an advisor for UT’s Catholic Student Association, said. “We are grateful for their support in our effort to make sure no one goes hungry.”
