Operation Pizza Bowl: Bringing pizza to patriots on game day

The Super Bowl is around the corner and, as is custom, many Americans will be chowing down on pizza.

But it's a little harder for service men and women thousands of miles away to order a slice–and that's where Mark Evans comes in. Evans is the Founder of Pizza 4 Patriots, an organization which delivers pizza to America's service men and women overseas. In partnership with UNO and DHL, Pizza 4 Patriots will be sending 7,000 pizzas to service members on Super Bowl Sunday. The pizzas will leave from JFK Airport on a special DHL flight to Bahrain and, from there, they will either go to Afghanistan or Iraq.

Mark Evans tells CNN's T.J. Holmes about Pizza 4 Patrios.
