Spokesperson Steve Maciel stated: "We're building the World's Biggest Human Pizza a slice at a time. As we gain momentum, we'll ultimately build an entire pizza and we issue a challenge to other hunger organizations to try and beat our record.Rhode Island has a long heritage with pizza. Grilled pizza was first introduced here and Travel & Leisure magazine recently voted Providence third best Pizza in America. And now, RI will be always be known as the home of the World's Biggest Human Pizza!We're also creating a connection between locally sourced products as pizza ingredients and toppings to tie it all together with the local food movement, improving our local economy and the goal of creating food secure communities."
Hunger Awareness Day is coordinated by the Hunger Task Force, a joint initiative of the Jonnycake Center of Peace Dale and the URI Feinstein Center for a Hunger Free America. Over a dozen local pizzerias and ice cream stores are generously donating free pizza and ice cream and live music is provided each year by South County favorites the Westmoreland Street Jammers and featured guest appearances by Ursula George, Santana Roberts, The Way Things Work, Barbi Beyer and Paul Geremia.
