Did You Know?

Did you know that in the USA October is National Pizza Month?

Over 3 billion pizzas are sold each year in the United States. Pepperoni is the favorite topping – that means we eat about 252 million pounds of pepperoni on our pizzas each year.  Every second about 350 slices of pizza are eaten and the average American eats 46 slices a year.  That’s about 4 slices a month.  Are you average?  Most of us like the thin crust and the thick crust and deep dish are tied for second.

Join us for our first Pizza Cook-Off and Community Group Expo Night on Wednesday, October 12th, from 5:30-7:30pm.  Bring a non-food item for Madison Food Center and you can sample the pizzas and vote for your favorite.
