The Little Caesars Love Kitchen made a stop at Corcoran Emergency Aid last week to feed the homeless. A big rig pizza kitchen on wheels, the Little Caesars Love Kitchen travels across the continental United States and Canada, meeting the needs of the hungry, homeless and victims of disasters.

The Little Caesars Love Kitchen has fed nearly three million people in 48 states and four Canadian provinces. Established by Little Caesars in 1985, the Love Kitchen exemplifies the company’s strong tradition of giving back to the communities in which it does business. Food and labor for each serving is donated by local Little Caesars franchisees and company market operators. Last week, Gus Shedid, owner of the Little Caesars in Corcoran, donated a total of 30 pizzas to the homeless. Shedid supplied the food for the day and the employees volunteered their time to serve the pizzas. The group expected to serve 70 people but were prepared to serve 100 people.


Former U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush awarded the President’s Volunteer Action Award Citation to Little Caesars for its volunteers’ contributions to the Little Caesars Love Kitchen. Little Caesars also received a Presidential Citation for Private Sector Initiatives for the Love Kitchen program under the Reagan Administration.


The Little Caesars Love Kitchen has provided relief to hundreds of thousands of victims and rescue workers of several disasters including tornadoes, hurricanes such as Hurricanes Sandy, Katrina and Rita in the Gulf Coast area, flooding, the World Trade Center attack, the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bombing, the San Fernando Valley Earthquake, and the Power Plant Explosion at Ford Motor Company.
