Little Caesars ‘Love Kitchen’ delivers free slices to Louisville kids

Little Caesar’s Pizza served up cheesy smiles to dozens of kids in the Shawnee neighborhood through the Love Kitchen.

What’s essentially a big-rig pizza kitchen on wheels stopped at the Shawnee Boys and Girls Club to feed everyone for free. The event happens a couple of times a year.

“It’s something the kids really look forward to,” Kolby Atkinson with BGC said. “They come outside and see the big ‘ol Little Caesar’s truck and they know they’re getting pizza for the day. So it just gets them amped up and excited.”

Little Caesar’s said delivering the pies makes them excited too, especially when they see how happy it makes the kids.

“When you do something good for somebody and you don’t need nothing in return, it just makes you feel good about yourself knowing that I did something good today,” Anthony Easton with the Love Kitchen said.

The Love Kitchen made a stop in Shawnee as it continues its tour across the U.S.

The Love Kitchen was set to make three additional stops in Louisville throughout the week, hoping to serve 1,500 people.

There are currently two trucks in operation that travel across the United States, serving communities 365 days a year. More than three million people have been served, thus far.
