Pizza equipment suppliers donate 150 pizzas to the local community

Date published: 01 November 2019

Yesterday (31st October), Oldham based pizza equipment suppliers, LLK, distributed 150 pizzas around different establishments all over the borough of Oldham which were left over following a pressure test on one of their pizza ovens.

Their Cuppone Giotto oven had been put through its paces to test how many pizzas it had the capacity to make in just 1 hour.

The oven fired out a whopping 150 stone baked pizzas, a number even the team of 15 pizza professionals couldn’t handle alone.

To prevent this plethora of pizza going to waste, LLK staff spent an afternoon dividing up and delivering all 150 pizzas in their service and repair van to deserving groups throughout the community.

These included Oldham Community Fire Station, Dr Kershaw’s Hospice, the youth club MAHDLO, the residential rehabilitation facility Turning Point and the homeless charities Depaul and Manchester-based Coffee4Craig.

Jenna Lewis, commercial director at LLK, said “It would be a terrible shame to let quality, delicious food go to waste. It gives us enormous pleasure to share it with people from our local community. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that helped us out by accepting a pizza or ten!”
