In 2018, Pizza Geeks launched ‘Pizza for the People’, a one for one initiative that sees sales of their featured pizza matched and donated to homeless and disadvantaged people within the local community. Since then, more than 23,000 pizzas have been given away to those in need.

The restaurant has been working closely with local charities and organisations to ensure the food gets to the people who need it most.

However, the bosses behind the independent pizzeria have decided to further expand the initiative, in response to the cost of living crisis.

Patrick Ward and Finlay Clarkson, Co-Founders of Pizza Geeks said: "With the cost of living crisis causing so much worries for people all over the country we feel now is a good time to do so. Community slice is for anyone who could use one so please if you know anyone who is struggling at this time let them know and hopefully pizza geeks can help a little bit”

Pizza Geeks started out serving at some of Edinburgh’s best street food markets, before launching their Haymarket restaurant in 2018. Last year, they opened their second location on the Leith shore.
