    Industry News | October 2, 2015

    Hungry Howie’s, the originator of flavored crust pizza, continues in its steadfast commitment to National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with its seventh annual “Love, Hope & Pizza” campaign. Since 2009, Hungry Howie’s has been dedicated to spreading awareness and raising funds for National Breast Cancer Foundation Inc. Throughout the month of October, the brand will serve pizza in pink boxes embellished with NBCF’s logo. For every pizza sold, Hungry Howie’s donates a portion of the proceeds to NBCF. Along with all pizzas, a portion of each chocolate Howie Brownie sale, decorated with a pink raspberry sauce, will go to NBCF.

    During this special month, Hungry Howie’s customers will share personal stories of their experiences with breast cancer, as well as their stories of love, hope, and inspiration via Facebook with Hungry Howie’s followers. Fans are encouraged to share these stories of strength through Facebook. Those who share a story on the Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of the third week of October will receive a coupon code for a free, small cheese pizza. Additionally, throughout the entire month of October, any customer who donates $10 to NBCF will be sent a certificate for a free, large, one-topping pizza (valid at participating stores, excludes Alabama and Florida). Pink bracelets and Love, Hope & Pizza T-shirts are also available for purchase, with all proceeds donated to NBCF.
