About Ben

Good Pizza was founded by Ben Berman, a graduate student at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. When the pandemic hit Philadelphia in March of 2020, Ben had a big batch of pizza dough that he was planning to make for a get together with friends. After realizing that large gatherings probably weren’t the best idea, Ben needed a plan to get rid of all that dough…

And that’s how Good Pizza was born!

Philabundance was one of those organizations, and a valuable partnership was born. Because of our work combatting hunger and providing healthy food to our neighbors in need, Ben knew that Philabundance would be the perfect place to continue the good work he had started.

Now a Philabundance initiative, Good Pizza operates as part of the Philabundance Community Kitchen (PCK), providing free pizzas to raise money for Philabundance’s work combatting hunger in Southeastern Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey.

Contributions made to Good Pizza at Philabundance go directly to programs that provide meals to individuals and families in need, while the Good Pizza program also offers exciting learning opportunities for our PCK students.

“I’m proud now to turn over the leadership of Good Pizza to an organization that I know will make it grow and thrive.” - Ben Berman, founder of Good Pizza PHL

Are the Philabundance Community Kitchen students making the pizzas? The Philabundance Community Kitchen has two sides to the work.
