The business is trying to give back in a big way.
When you walk into BurnBox Pizza, the phrase “everyone deserves to eat” is written in large letters taking up a main wall.
Ryan Whitfield, co-founder of the restaurant, said they have adopted those words as a mission.
“We’re always here to kind of help other people,” Whitfield said.
For every pizza purchased at BurnBox, the restaurant is donating a pizza to someone in need.
The goal is to give away 10,000 pizzas to local people with food insecurity by Oct. 1.
They’re already 60% there and are grateful for the community support so far.

The restaurant is partnering with Feeding America, Prince George’s County Food Equity Council and the Maryland Food Bank to donate the pies.
