NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Five Points Pizza joined forces with A Slice of Hope, a national hunger-awareness advocacy organization, for this year’s A Slice of Hope Week. The East Nashville hot spot hosted a pizza party dinner for the Room in the Inn’s 90 residents on June 21 at the shelter in Nashville.
A Slice of Hope is a nonprofit founded and led by New York-based Bollywood actor and television personality Obaid Kadwani that organizes volunteer-led “parties of hope” at homeless shelters and food banks in conjunction with local pizzeria operators across the country. This year’s A Slice of Hope Week ran from June 19-25 in cities across the country, with PMQ Pizza Magazine as a partner in the cause. Nashville singer Jessica Dawn performed for the event.
“Although we participate in a lot of local events, it's the first year we’ve been involved in this national effort,” said David Tieman, co-owner of Five Points Pizza. “It's a really great cause, and we appreciate being able to be a part of it. They are creating awareness of an issue that is important to all of us.” For more information about Room at the Inn, visit www.roomintheinn.org.
