It pays to do good things.

A pizza place in New York City has dedicated itself to feeding health care and hospital workers who are struggling to keep up with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Now the restaurant’s landlord is joining in to make sure that the food keeps coming out of the kitchen and into the hospitals.

Sauce Pizzeria has reportedly delivered pizzas to over 40 different hospitals across the city's five boroughs, all for free.

Sauce Pizzeria owner, Adam Elzer, says his restaurant is making 400 pizzas per day and sending them all to the city’s hospitals, NBC New York reports. He told the news outlet that he wanted to make sure that the workers were still able to get something to eat while dealing with the outbreak.

“They’re running around from room to room, the hospitals are packed, and if we’re not sending food, a lot of them are not eating,” Elzer told NBC New York. “Basically anywhere that we get a note from a nurse or a doctor telling us that they’re in need, we figure out a way to get them on the schedule and then we deliver to that hospital.”

Ben Kraus of AE Real Estate Management, Sauce’s landlord, found out about the donations and decided to help out. The real estate company donated $20,000 to the pizzeria and froze rent payments for the next three months.

“It made it a lot easier for us to keep doing what we’re doing and to feel really good about that,” Elzer said. “Pizza makes people happy. That’s what this started from, that we wanted to give them some reason to smile when it’s kinda hard to smile with what they’re currently doing.”

“I saw what Adam was doing on social media honestly and when we noticed what he was doing it was very clear that we needed to help him,” Krause told the outlet. “We set up Adam with logistics to be able to deliver en mass to hospitals all over New York City.”
