OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - What started as a pizza giveaway in an Owensboro park has grown into a successful non-profit.

Beverly’s Hearty Slice began serving the pizza in Kendall Perkins Park back in 2020.

Organizers say community sponsors and donations poured in.

Now two years later, they serve pizza in three different locations every other Friday.

Founder Travis Owsley says he recently connected with a local pastor.

That opened the door for Beverly’s Hearty Slice to offer camp scholarships.

Connect Camp starts July 25 at Kentucky Wesleyan.

Owsley says it usually costs $240 dollars for the week, but the scholarship cuts that price to $25.

He says they have 5 scholarships left.

You can find that info on the Beverly Hearty Slice Facebook page.

You can watch our full interview with Owsley below.
