On April 18 from 5:00-10:00, all delivery and pick up orders from Garage Pizza, Mid City Pizza, Pizza Delicious, and all Reginelli’s Pizzeria locations will feature poems by New Orleans writers ages 6-18.
Each of our pizza partners has generously agreed to donate a portion of their proceeds to support Big Class’s free creative writing programs for under-resourced youth.
Big Class is also excited to partner with Chapter 510, our fellow youth writing champions in Oakland, to make The Pizza Poetry Project a bridge from New Orleans to the Bay Area. Look out for our sticker on pizza boxes in Oakland at all five Lanesplitter Pizza locations and Rotten City Pizza.
Share the poem you receive and your responses using #pizzapoetry on social media!
Our official Pizza Poetry Project poster was co-designed by Big Class Open Studio student D’Andre Johnson (special thanks to Heather Muntzer, Julia Lavigne, and Carrie Chappell), inspired by his poem:
BIG FOOT AND HIS FRIEND HOMER SIMPSON
and 8 feet tall.
His eyes are 10 inches wide
Big Foot loves to ride ships
and play in the park.
He always gets pizza and eats donuts out
of the candy machine.
Big Foot’s friend is Homer Simpson
They all have fun, be crazy, and
