"Giving Back". CEHS grad Ben Berman talked to Ellen DeGeneres about using his cooking skills to make free pizzas for his community and raise money for local Philadelphia charities. During the pandemic Ben started making pizza as a way to connect with friends and to maintain social distance - he came up with the idea of lowering the pizza out his apartment window using a makeshift pulley. The idea took off! His pizza is so popular, that he has a lottery to select weekly pizza winners. People from around the world - who will never get to taste one of Ben's pizzas - are donating. To date, Ben has baked hundreds of pizzas for the community and raised over $34,000. Ben pays for everything out of his own pocket and the pizza is free. All donations go to charities in the Philly area fighting hunger and homelessness. To help continue his efforts, Ellen and her friends at Shutterfly gave Ben $10,000! So that is $44,000 and counting!
