CHICAGO (CBS) — A taste of Chicago will be headed to Afghanistan come Super Bowl Sunday.

“It’s one of the biggest pizza deliveries in the world. We hope to feed every solider in Afghanistan. 50,000 pizzas,” said Master Sgt. Mark Evans with Pizzas for Patriots.

He said they’ve been making and sending pizzas to soldiers for five years but this one is the biggest delivery yet.

Evans says they hope to reach their goal of at least $250,000 which would pay to send the pizzas.

The pies will be made from scratch from various Chicago food companies.

Pizzas for Patriots will also be delivery pies to several veterans hospitals across the country for the upcoming holiday.
