Pizza making hobby now raising thousands for people impacted by Hurricane Ida

Do you want to take part in eating pizza with the revenues going to those impacted by Hurricane Ida?

“Eat Pizza, Feed People.” That is the slogan for Palmarone’s Pizza, a backyard pizza parlor determined to give back to the community in difficult times.

Amid the pandemic shutdown in 2020, Palmarone’s started out as a backyard pizza parlor experience that Michael Palmer and his friend, Cody Salomone, wanted to create for their children. There, everyone would “work” as chef, hostess and waiter to get some life experience as well.

The experiment went so well that the two families fell in love with crafting pizzas and they started getting questions from others wanting in on the pies. As a result, they turned their fun pastime into a charitable opportunity.

In December 2020, Palmarone’s held its first pop-up shop where they sold 36 pizzas and raised $1,100 for the Food Bank of Greater Baton Rouge. When Hurricane Ida devastated Terrebonne Parish, they knew exactly how they could help.

Palmarone’s held its second pop-up shop on October 31. This time, the proceeds went to the Terrebonne United Churches Food Bank. They ended up doubling their original donation selling 36 pizzas and raising $2,220!

If you’re wondering how you can help out in this great cause, donations are still being accepted and all proceeds go to Terrebonne Churches United Food Bank. To donate, follow this link.
