Little Caesar's Love Kitchen visits Emmaus Soup Kitchen

It’s not often that mascots come to the Emmaus Soup Kitchen, but when they do everyone from the youngest children to the oldest adults enjoy their presence by saying hi, getting a high-five, and taking pictures. Little Caesar, the mascot of the pizza company by the same name, visited the soup kitchen in late October, bringing with him 90 freshly cooked pizzas for the guests of Emmaus.

The pizzas were cooked onsite in the nationwide-traveling Little Caesars’ Love Kitchen, a semi-truck with a full industrial kitchen inside. The truck travels from city to city serving pizzas at soup kitchens around the country.

Christine, manager of five Little Caesars’ shops in the Erie area, and her staff arrived at 2 pm to start preparing and baking pizzas for the two hundred guests that began arriving at 4 pm. “We do this to give back to the community,” Christine said. “This year, the pizzas all come from the Little Caesars’ store on Liberty Street.”

After the Love Kitchen visited Erie, it was headed to Pittsburgh.
