Hungry Howie's Fundraises for Breast Cancer Foundation

Hungry Howie’s, the originator of Flavored Crust pizza, continues its dedication to raising funds and awareness for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) this October through its annual “Love, Hope & Pizza” campaign. For the past eight years, the pizza brand has partnered with NBCF to support survivors and those currently fighting breast cancer by donating a portion of sales from its signature Flavored Crust pizzas and specialty merchandise.

Throughout the month of October, Hungry Howie’s will be serving its flavorsome pizzas in pink boxes emblazoned with the NBCF logo in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For every pizza purchased during Love, Hope & Pizza, Hungry Howie’s will make a donation to NBCF.  Hungry Howie’s also makes a donation to NBCF for every Love, Hope & Pizza bracelet sold. In-store, fans have the opportunity to purchase a “Slice of Hope” at their local Hungry Howie’s location to let everyone know they’ve joined in the fight against breast cancer. Customers are invited to help the cause when they order online and have the option to add a donation to NBCF.

“We are thrilled to begin our ninth year of raising awareness in the fight against breast cancer alongside NBCF. This campaign has become an integral part of the Hungry Howie’s identity and we are proud to make a difference in the lives of those affected,” says Rob Elliott, executive vice president of marketing at Hungry Howie’s. “Throughout the years, we have raised more than $2 million for NBCF and will continue serving pizza that greatly changes lives and promotes strength and hope.”

“Our partnership with Hungry Howie’s has helped expand our initiative to provide women across the nation with access to early detection services, mammograms, education, and unlimited support services,” says Janelle Hail, cofounder and CEO of NBCF. Every year we look forward to the Love, Hope & Pizza campaign to continue spreading awareness and touching the hearts of breast cancer survivors, fighters, and families who feel the impact of this terrible illness daily.”
