WAUPUN, WI (WTAQ) - U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan enjoyed a taste of Wisconsin on the 4th of July.

A program called “Pizzas for Patriots” delivered 20,000 Chicago-style pizzas, topped with cheese from Saputo’s in Waupun.

Retired Master Sergeant Mark Evans started the program in 2008. He explained it to the CEO of the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board at a recent trade show in Chicago – and James Robson got Saputo’s involved.

Great Kitchens of Chicago made the pizzas, and they were frozen before being cooked in Afghanistan for the troops. Robson says the marketing board is thinking about being a part of Evans’ next “Pizza For Patriots” delivery for the next Super Bowl in February.
