NYPD's Trades Pizza for Blankets and Rich Cocoa Brownies in Today's Eater's Digest

Hungry for your early morning serving of food news, with no preservatives or additives?

Blanket = Pizza
NYPD Pizza needs your new blankets and sleeping bags -- and they're willing to trade you for a cheese pizza. The charitable pizza joint has teamed up with Blanketing Arizona to help get warm blankets to those in need before Christmas. Drop off up to four blankets or sleeping bags to any one of the ten NYPD locations and you'll receive a certificate for one free 14" cheese pizza per blanket. The blanket drive starts today and runs through Thursday. NYPD will then distribute meals and blankets to those in need on Christmas Eve morning. For more info check out NYPD's Facebook page.
