The smash hit of the summer – free pizza courtesy of Steven Fox Jewelry just off Greenwich Avenue – returns this fall on Saturday, Nov. 21. Steven Fox Jewelry, one of the area’s most unique jewelry stores, will be providing free pizza to the community by hosting the ever-popular New Haven Pizza Truck. The event will be held from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. in front of the store’s location at 8 Lewis Street. Free gourmet pizza will be provided for the neighborhood as a thank you from Steven Fox for their endless support over the years.
A pop up café will be created next to the jewelry store, complete with tables for community members to sit and enjoy their thin crust pizza. Guests will have the opportunity to learn about Kids in Crisis and donations will be accepted on behalf of the organization, which recently announced a cut in $750,000 of funding from the State of Connecticut. After the event, the truck will head to Kids in Crisis, where children in residence will receive a free meal courtesy of Steven Fox Jewelry and the New Haven Pizza Truck.
“It is heartwarming that Steven Fox Jewelry has generously offered to host another community pizza day this year. The event is a tremendous opportunity to spread awareness about the services Kids in Crisis provides. In addition, the dinner provided to our children after is a wonderful opportunity for them to experience some normalcy in their lives. We thank Steven Fox Jewelry and the New Haven Pizza Truck for serving as fantastic community partners,” said Shari Shapiro, Executive Director of Kids in Crisis. Community members are encouraged to enjoy free food at 8 Lewis Street while learning about the services provided at Kids in Crisis.
Kids in Crisis is Connecticut’s only free, round-the-clock agency providing emergency shelter, crisis counseling and community educational programs for children of all ages and families dealing with a wide range of crises – domestic violence, mental health and family problems, substance abuse, economic difficulties and more. Since its founding in 1978, Kids in Crisis has helped more than 132,000 Connecticut children and families; last year, 6,184 children and families received assistance from the organization.
