Pizzas 4 Patriots is once again teaming up with DHL Express and Uno's to deliver 10,000 pizzas to U.S. servicemen and servicewomen on Super Bowl Sunday, the largest pizza-eating day of the year.

With DHL Express donating its global express shipping network for the non-profit organization, Pizzas 4 Patriots will send enough of Uno's deep dish pizza to feed more than 30,000 troops.

"Although a significant draw-down of U.S. troops continues in Iraq, more than 100,000 service men and women are serving heroically in Afghanistan," said Ret. Master Sergeant Mark Evans, founder of Pizzas 4 Patriots. "We need to let U.S. troops serving thousands of miles away know that Americans at home still remember they are there and deeply appreciate their service to our country."

This week, the Chicago-style pizzas packed in temperature-cooled containers will depart the U.S. via a DHL Express direct flight to the Middle East. Once in Afghanistan, the shipment will be distributed to Camp Bastion, Bagram Airbase and Kandahar, as well as various Forward Operating Bases in the country.

DHL Express will provide door-to-door, final mile delivery for the distribution, working closely with the U.S. military to ensure the pizzas are delivered fresh at various military bases.

Since 2008, Pizzas 4 Patriots has worked with DHL Express to send more than 70,000 pizzas in support of U.S. military personnel overseas. Frank Guidara, Uno's CEO, said the effort is a way for the company to show appreciation.
