Feed hungry would-be voters through Pizza to the Polls, an organization that delivers pizza to voters waiting in line, as well as protestors.
Democracy is hard work. Hungry work, sometimes. When long lines form at the polls, some folks might give up and go home if they’re hungry or have no hope of getting fed and voting before they have to be back at their jobs.
Enter Pizza to the Polls, an organization that accepts reports of poll lines and sends pizza to those waiting to vote.
As of December 24, 2017, Pizza to the Polls has accepted more than $50,000 in donations and delivered more than 2,500 pizzas to voters in Chicago, Miami, Cincinnati, JFK airport, Dulles airport, and more. It also delivered pizzas to people in Washington who protested the GOP tax bill in December 2017.
Note: donations are not tax-deductible.
