TMSG: Pizza Shop Operates on "Pay-It-Forward" Model


8th St. Pizza in New Albany, Indiana is doing what it can to help the community, especially those that are underprivileged or homeless. 

The pizza company serves food three days a week and allows guests to pay whatever they can. They are part of a non-profit, Clean Socks Hope, which partners with the under-served neighborhoods to provide development that leads to restoration in all areas of life. Any proceeds from 8th St. Pizza got to rent, utilities and programming. 

Each month, 200 to 250 pizzas are ordered from the restaurant. And the made-to-order pizza is made by volunteers. If someone can't pay for the food, they can help out around the shop. They say the pizza shop is open to anyone. People who afford to pay-it-forward, will pay for their own meal and then make a donation to provide meals for someone else. 


If you're in or around the idea, you can visit 8th St. Pizza at 800 E. 8th Street in New Albany, Indiana. The restaurant is open Wednesday 4 p.m. - 8 p.m., Thursday 11 a.m. - 2 p.m., and Friday 11 a.m. - 8 p.m.
