Starting November 17, Övn Wood Fired Pizza in Fairhaven began offering free to-go pizzas to food service employees. All you have to do is show your pay stub to collect a free margherita or pepperoni pizza. To begin, Övn is giving away 25 pizzas per day.
“There’s going to be a lot of people with some financial hardship coming up here,” says owner Matt Brawner. “Our thought was, people gotta eat, and usually they’re spending money to do that. So if we give them food, they’re not spending money to eat. Maybe they can keep some money in their pockets for something that they need.”
