This year, National Nurses Week, established by the American Nurses Association in 1990, holds a special significance as we honor the dedication of health care workers in the global fight against COVID-19. In appreciation of their remarkable strength and commitment, Little Caesars is donating and delivering thousands of pizzas to healthcare workers at Los Angeles area hospitals. The donations kicked off at Keck Hospital of USC and will continue to other area hospitals throughout National Nurses Week.

“Little Caesars wants to recognize the incredible contributions that nurses and other front-line medical heroes make to our communities every day,” said President and CEO of Little Caesars, Dave Scrivano. “They’re working around the clock to keep us safe and healthy, and we want to give them the opportunity to take a break and enjoy a wholesome meal.”

This effort is part of the chain’s commitment to donating and delivering 1 million pizzas to hospital workers and first responders nationwide, which is made possible by Little Caesars, its thousands of independent hard-working franchisees and their locally owned stores, and Ilitch Charities, a non-profit whose goal is to positively impact lives and empower communities.

To help deliver the pizzas throughout the Los Angeles area, the Little Caesars Love Kitchen, a big-rig pizza kitchen on wheels, will travel from the chain’s hometown of Detroit to Los Angeles.

Customers can join the effort and “Pie It Forward” by donating a pizza to their nearby hospitals, police and fire departments when ordering from the Little Caesars app or website. To date, more than 170,000 pizzas have been generously donated by Little Caesars customers.
