Pie Five Kicking Off '25 Days of Giving' in Chicago

In celebration of its one-year anniversary in Chicago, Pie Five Pizza Co. is giving back to the local community with its "25 Days of Giving" program. From December 1 to 25, the fast casual pizza restaurant known for its handcrafted pizzas prepared in five minutes or less will donate $1 to the Greater Chicago Food Depository for every entrée purchased at all Pie Five restaurants in the Chicago area. Not only can Pie Five guests feel good knowing that their pizza (or entrée salad) is made from fresh, hand-cut veggies and flavorful ingredients, but they can also rest assured knowing their purchase is helping feed Chicagoans in need this holiday season.

"In the spirit of the holiday season, and Pie Five's one-year anniversary in Chicago, we wanted to give back in a big way," says Wendy Moats, senior vice Ppresident of Pie Five Pizza. "We believe no one should go to bed hungry, so we're proud to support the Greater Chicago Food Depository in their continued mission of ending hunger in the Chicago community."

Guests are also encouraged to bring in non-perishable canned food items to any of Pie Five's Chicago-area restaurants. These items will be delivered to the Greater Chicago Food Depository throughout the month of December. For more information about the Chicago Food Depository, please visit ChicagosFoodBank.org.

"At a time of year where many of our neighbors in need are struggling to access the food they need for a healthy life, we are grateful for the generous support of Pie Five Pizza Company," says Joan Chow, chief marketing officer for the Greater Chicago Food Depository. "Their donation will make a difference in many families' lives."

Pie Five has eight Chicago area locations in Skokie, Oak Lawn, Glenview, Rolling Meadows, Schaumburg, Palatine, Naperville and Algonquin.
