An anonymous crew of people, who recently launched Pizza to the Polls, want line waiters to know they have your backs—with pizza. The team writes on their website:

Americans are hungry for democracy and are turning out in record numbers to vote. But that means long lines and sometimes empty stomachs, which might discourage these brave patriots from performing their civic duty.<,blockquote>
Fortunately Pizza to the Polls is here to deliver the one thing that pairs so perfectly with freedom: piping hot 'za. Send us reports of long lines and we'll send in the delicious reinforcements.

Using Slice, which helps locate nearby pizzerias, the crew sent 16 pizzas to that long line in Cincinnati, according to Eater, as well as pies to line waiters in Miami and Chicago. In just a few days, the team has raised $10,000 for pies:

If that budget doesn’t get used up, the team has promised “every dollar collected will go towards feeding hungry Americans. We . . . haven't had the time to pick out a specific charity, but if you have suggestions, please let us know!”
