CHICAGO — Gov. Pat Quinn says military members deployed overseas will get Chicago-style pizzas in time for Super Bowl Sunday.

The nonprofit group Pizza 4 Patriots has been sending pizzas to service members since 2008. The idea is send them some of the comforts of home while they're deployed.

Quinn will join officials with the group and DHL Express on Wednesday to pack up pizzas for the trip.

They expect to send about 10,000 ready-to-bake pizzas to troops.

Last year, 21,000 pizzas were shipped to Afghanistan and Kuwait. They were frozen and packed with dry ice.
