Established in 1991 by Jan Venkayya, Day of Caring is a grass roots organization based in Beavercreek, made up of volunteers committed to increasing personal awareness and involvement toward confronting the ever-increasing national plight of hunger and homelessness. This years event will take place on Sunday, Feb 24th all over town. All proceeds from these Brunches benefit the local community’s Hunger and Housing Coalitions.
From the first pancake brunch with 12 locations this event has grown to locations in over 7 counties. As in the past, churches, community organizations, and public foundations host, prepare, and serve the annual pancake brunch. “Each year, 500 volunteers get together to serve over 7,000 meals,” Day of Caring 365 Trustee Steve Pax said in a news release. “Those who are homeless or hungry find a generous support from our community during Thanksgiving and Christmas, however The Day of Caring Pancake Brunch takes the last Sunday in February to remind the needy that we don’t forget about them. We show that we care 365 days a year.”
Brunches run on average $6 for adults and $4 for seniors (over 60) and children (under 12). Most brunches include pancakes and sausages, coffee and juice, but each location put their own spin on additional offerings.

Butcher started the business in 2016 with pop-up events and catering. Shortly after, the team began their food truck adventure. Harnessing a great following and 5-star average rating online, Flyby BBQ used this time to perfect the dishes that would mold the menu for their upcoming restaurant. “We are excited to be part of the growing Beavercreek community and give them a taste of what barbecue can be. It’s truly unlike anything you’ve seen before.” said David Butcher, Owner of Flyby BBQ.

They also feature homemade comfort food sides, famous peanut butter banana pudding, as well as craft beer and sodas. Their menu is sure to have something for everyone as they also offer vegan Pulled BBQ Jackfruit as a protein option. As Butcher put it, they serve “real smoke, real ingredients, real fast.” Looking to cater a small business meeting or large family for the night?

You have heard the buzz and mumblings, and may have even seen what the pizzas look like. . Giordano’s Pizza is coming. Yes, finally, a one of a kind Deep Dish Chicago Style Icon will enter the Miami Valley, and thick pizza in Dayton will forever be changed.
Opening day will be Tuesday, Feb 19th!
They will open at 2819 Centre Drive, which is across from the Fairfield Commons, in the spot that was once Logan’s Steakhouse.
Eating the pizza here is a Food Adventure. in fact it is more of a pie than pizza. A combination of deep dish pizza, a stuffed pizza and a tomato pie from all walks and regions of Italian life.
HERE’S THE SKINNY ON GIORDANO’S RESTAURANT:
— In the 1800’s in Turino, Italy, Mama Giordano would get married to a Mr Boglio. Every Easter she would make a big “Italian Easter Pie” for her family. This pie was made only on special occasions and was a huge, stuffed pizza.
— In 1974 Italian immigrants Efren and Joseph Boglio started serving their mom’s recipe in the South side of Chicago.
— In 2018 they have about 50 locations, one about to be Dayton, Ohio !
HOW TO MAKE A FAMOUS GIORDANO’S STUFFED PIZZA:
1) The pizzas are made to order and baked like a pie
2) An oiled, Deep Dish pan is lined with a signature flaky, thick dough on the bottom. This dough tastes like a mix of pizza dough, part pie dough, and part “pot pie” crust.
3) The pan is lined with ingredients placed on top of the thick crust.
4) The ingredients are covered in a huge mound of mozzarella cheese
5) This step is the “secret” that sets them apart. A thin layer of top dough is than placed atop the pizza and trimmed off, making a pie type appearance. Numerous air holes are purposely put into this layer.
6) A thick, generous helping of marinara sauce is hand ladled onto the thin top crust , covering it completely.
7) The pizza is baked for 45 minutes.
There you have it, the steps to a Giordano’s Stuffed pizza. We hope they open sooner than later, we cannot wait for a stuffed pizza Food Adventure.
Besides stuffed pizza Giordano menu features appetizers, Italian dishes, thin crust pizza, salads, and has a full catering menu.
Dayton has had its brush with Chicago Pizzas. Uno’s Pizzeria used to operate 3 stores in Dayton, Centerville and Huber Heights. Two Uno’s have since closed and only the downtown Dayton location remains at 126 North Main St. next to Victoria Theater.
