LITTLE CAESARS LOVE KITCHEN TO FEED 10,000 PEOPLE
FROM LOS ANGELES-AREA FOSTER FAMILIES AT 'MAGICAL CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION'
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- For this year's "Magical Christmas Celebration" put on by the Los Angeles County Department of Children's Services, the kids asked for pizza and that's exactly what they'll get -- compliments of the Little Caesars Love Kitchen. The special serving will feed 10,000 people, including 5,000 foster children and their foster parents from the Los Angeles area. The children are dependent on the courts because they have been abandoned, abused, or physically or sexually assaulted. The Love Kitchen, a pizza restaurant on wheels, will serve the children Monday, Dec. 23, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Ramada Hotel and Convention Center in Compton, in one of its largest single on-site servings since the program was created in 1985. The Little Caesars Love Kitchen, inspired by Little Caesars Chairman of the Board Michael Ilitch, is a non-profit foundation established for the sole purpose of providing nutritious meals to soup kitchens, or wherever needy people gather. The service is provided at absolutely no cost to the group or agency being served by the Little Caesars Love Kitchen. "Little Caesars of California is delighted to be a part of this wonderful program, and we are pleased to help create a memorable holiday for the children," said Steve Hutchins, Little Caesars market director. Since its inception in 1985, the Love Kitchen has fed more than 734,000 people in 48 U.S. states and three Canadian provinces. The Los Angeles program will be one of the Love Kitchen's largest single on- site servings. Other major servings include: Feeding people affected by Hurricane Hugo in Charleston, S.C., as well as serving underprivileged children at The White House Easter Egg Roll two years in a row. President Bush honored contributions made to the Love Kitchen by Little Caesars company employees with a Presidential Citation for Volunteerism in 1991. Little Caesars also received a Presidential Citation for Private Sector Initiatives for the Love Kitchen program under the Reagan administration. -0- 12/20/91 /CONTACT: Al Sebastian or Jill Taschner of Little Caesar Enterprises, 313-983-6158/ CO: Little Caesar Enterprises ST: California, Michigan IN: SU:
