Default Helping Hurricane Sandy Victims Through Pizza

From the Wood-Fired Blog:

This story really makes me feel good. I received an email and a photo today from Joseph Pergolizzi, the owner of The Fire Within, our partner in the mobile catering oven market. We’ve worked with Joseph for years, and he was in California just a few weeks ago at FB Expo, where he did a great job of overseeing the cooking and hands-on demo’s.

Joseph was originally from the east coast, and he rallied some friends and four catering pizza oven customers, and they have been making pizza and helping feed people struck by Hurricane Sandy for the past week — all because he thinks it’s the right thing to do. Hey, they use wood, so they don’t even need power or gas.

You can send money to the crew by PayPal to “Peter Seminara” <petersem@earthlink.net> on his cell phone at 201-264-7822. That’s what we did.

Here is the text from Joseph’s email:

This past Saturday in Staten Island.

300 pizzas on Saturday. Not only did we bake at a FEMA / donation site we had cars shuttling your pizza’s into the areas where people didn’t want to leave their homes because of looters.

Fire Within customers from 4 states
New Jersey
New York
