Little Caesars Love Kitchen

By: Danni Eickenhorst, Midland Division

The Little Caesars Love Kitchen pulled up to our Granite City community center on November 10 carrying fresh dough and a crew ready to cook for those in need. The project born out of love, started more than 20 years ago. David Fox the Love Kitchen Driver says, “We drive all over the country, feeding those in need. We primarily cook for homeless shelters and soup kitchens – about 70% of which are Salvation Army kitchens.”

Bab Njai owns seven Little Caesar's locations, which donate a total of 600 to 700 pizzas weekly to Salvation Army food pantries in Southern Illinois.

The Love Kitchen reached out to local franchise owner Bab Njai and asked if he would be willing to donate ingredients and staff so that they might feed the needy in Granite City and he didn’t hesitate to say yes. “We already donate 600 to 700 pizzas per week to local Salvation Army food pantries throughout southern Illinois,” says Njai, “I came from Africa with nothing and I know what it is to have very little. We just want to help those who need help.”

The Love Kitchen provided hot food for more than 220 individuals in the day’s event. Our continued gratitude goes out to Little Caesars and Njai for their support!
