How about a cheeseburger with your ‘I voted’ sticker? Pizza to the Polls, a nonprofit organization whose slogan is “democracy is delicious,” has been passing out free food around polling sites this week.
Lucy Werner, a volunteer with the organization, said she’s been in the District for the past five days, passing out everything from Kind bars to chips and salsa to pizza to voters and anyone else who happens to pass by.
Mid-day Nov 3, the group was outside the Union Market voting supercenter handing out free waters and Shake Shack cheeseburgers. Pizza to the Polls partners with local restaurants who donate the food to encourage people to get out and vote, Werner explained.
The organization is non-partisan. “We are just here literally to support everyone – anyone and everyone who walks by. It is free food for all,” said Werner.
