Pizza Factory announced its six week campaign to bring awareness to childhood hunger. Throughout September until October 16, Pizza Factory will be donating $1 from every order through their app to No Kid Hungry in honor of September being Hunger Awareness Month.
Pizza Factory’s goal is to raise $5,000 to support its mission as a franchise, bring awareness to an important cause and help the families within the communities its restaurants serve. Now more than ever, with back to school season looking different this year, millions of children are struggling to get simple meals. Dine, shop and share provides children with meals containing the necessary nutrition that they need to be successful, remain energized and focused during the school day.
“Pizza Factory believes it’s important to eat good and do good,” says Mary Jane Riva, Pizza Factory CEO. “That was the inspiration behind our partnership with No Kid Hungry many years ago and our locations are always eager to participate and give back to their communities. This year especially, with COVID-19 creating a different back to school experience, millions of children are at risk of losing healthy meals that they depend on. Our goal in this six-week initiative is to make a positive impact on the children in our communities by raising money to help them receive the meals the deserve. Our team is excited to be continuing our annual partnership and seeing the difference we can make.”
One in four kids in the United States could face hunger this year due to COVID-19. No Kid Hungry’s mission is to ensure kids get three healthy meals a day with classrooms being closed and their reopening undetermined.
Unlike other quick-service pizzerias, everything on Pizza Factory’s menu is prepared fresh with ingredients, such as hand-grated 100 percent mozzarella cheese, slow-cooked meat sauce and meatballs that are hand rolled in-house. As a differentiator, the concept also offers a wider menu variety than most with hot and cold sandwiches, pastas, chicken wings and more.
