According to, “A Chicago pizzeria wants to make sure U.S. troops overseas have everything they need for a perfect Super Bowl party Sunday.”

“Gino’s East will send 10,000 frozen, deep-dish pizzas to American soldiers in the Middle East just in time for the big game. The effort is part of the “Pizzas 4 Patriots” initiative. Restaurant owner and retired Air Force Master Sergeant Mark Evans started sending troops pizza four years ago when his son asked whether G.I.s ever got to eat pizza from home. A record 28,000 pizzas were sent for various occasions in 2009. This year, DHL has volunteered its delivery services and American dairy farmers are also on board to send $7,000 bottles of milk and 500 footballs to various bases in Iraq.”
