Pizza in Prison – level 2

07-06-2017 07:00

A chef from Chicago runs a programme called ‘Recipe for Change’. He helps prisoners in a prison make pizzas.

The chef thinks that it is all people’s responsibility to do something for others or to save other people’s lives. One pizza costs $7 and people make around 200 pizzas a week.

The plan now is to sell the pizzas from a food truck outside the prison.

Difficult words: chef (a professional cook), recipe (a text which tells you how to cook something), responsibility (something that you should do).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
