Pizza in Prison – level 3

07-06-2017 07:00

As part of a programme called ‘Recipe for Change’ run by Chicago chef Bruno Abate, inmates in a prison in the USA can make and enjoy pizzas.

The chef thinks that it is all people’s responsibility to do something for the community or to save other people’s lives. The plan now is to sell the pizzas from a food truck outside the prison.

One pizza costs $7 and people make around 200 pizzas a week.

Difficult words: recipe (a text that tells you how to make food; directions on how how to do something), inmate (a person in jail).
