Good Pizza Returns, Running Out of Philabundance
While Ben Berman was attending Wharton during the pandemic, he created a dreamed up a silly idea to feed his friends and make them laugh. He made fresh pizzas, then, using a homemade pulley system, lowered them out of his apartment window to people below.
Passerby’s caught on to the concept and Good Pizza became a viral hit sensation. Fans would enter a weekly lottery for their chance to score one of weekly twenty slots. Ben did not charge for the pizzas, all money collected went to local organizations like Philabundance.

After graduation, Ben moved the Good Pizza concept into retirement. But not for long. Philabundance reached out and offered to keep it going out of their student run kitchen. And now it’s available for delivery within the city.
The Philabundance Community Kitchen is a 16-week culinary vocational training program that has been transforming the lives people with low-to-no income since 2000. They will be making 20 pizzas a week, and “winners” will be selected using a the traditional Good Pizza lottery system.
