**[[UPDATE]] Worried about the long lines? Punch says, "We will let any customer with grocery bag of food donation cut in line and go to counter to get pizza card raincheck to use at any later date when the store is not as crazy. Just bring your bag to the "expo" counter where pizzas are cut and we will give you a free pizza card."[jump]
