Announcing 826 Valencia’s Pizza Poetry Project

We’re very excited about National Poetry Month around here! On top of our partnership with Ritual Coffee Roasters, we’re also teaming up with local pizza places to get our students’ voices out into the world.

On Fridays throughout the month of April, pizza parlors across San Francisco will be joining in on the fun by attaching poems by 826 Valencia students to their take-out boxes. So, when you’re hungry for pizza this month, curb that craving until Friday and head to one of these participating businesses:
Pizzeria Delfina
3611 18th St. (Mission)
Goat Hill Pizza
300 Connecticut St. (Potrero Hill)
171 Stillman St. (SOMA)
170 West Portal Ave. (West Portal)
Pi Bar
1432 Valencia St. (Mission)
Himalayan Pizza & Momo
288 Golden Gate Ave. (Tenderloin)
Firepie *April 26 only
1379 4th Street – Parklab at Stagecoach Greens (Mission Bay)
3498 Cesar Chavez at Valencia St. (Mission)
Our friends at 826 New Orleans are also doing their own Pizza Poetry Project to celebrate students’ voices. While you’re out and about this spring, whether getting your daily caffeine fix or enjoying some delicious pizza, you’ll have an opportunity to celebrate and support our youth. Use #pizzapoetry and share your experiences with us!
