This pizza shop is supporting student activists
Free slices for the National School Walkout on April 20
Isra Hirsi, a freshman at South High School in Minneapolis, MN, contacted the nonprofit about supplying slices for the event. “I think it’s a great idea — [Pizza Saves] sounds absolutely amazing and they are really being supportive of what we are doing and trying to help us in any way possible,” Hirsi told Mic.com.
So far, Pizza Saves estimates they will be able to supply food for about one million students. “We wanted to create something to let kids know that adults hear them,” Mark Hinchliffe, a junior partner at Smith, Pizza Saves' parent company, said. “We’re not interested in co-opting their movement; food is an expression of love and it lets them know that someone in the world is listening to them and they don’t have to feel alone.”
The National School Walkout is set for April 20, 2018 in cities around the country.
