This new pizza place needs your help to raise money for Gleaners Community Food Bank

Posted By on Mon, Apr 20, 2015 at 2:02 PM

Do you love pizza? What about charity? Are you also a big fan of local award-winning caterer Annabel Cohen and her company, Annabel Cohen Cooks Detroit? 

ACCD plans to open a new carry-out joint in West Bloomfield in mid-May where they'll be selling pizza, panini, and salad. To help get the word out, the new eatery is doing a pretty special promotion. They're raising money for Gleaners Community Food Bank by selling discounted "pizza certificates" and donating half the cash to the charity.

Second, you can pop into ACCD's catering locations at 2530 Orchard Lake Rd., Slyvan Lake. Third, you can cruise around town hoping to spot Annabel Cohen herself as she drives her blue Mini Cooper (affectionately named Bradley Cooper). She'll be posting clues to her whereabouts on her Twitter (@annabelcooksdet), her Facebook page (AnnabelCooks), and the catering service's website (
