In honor of Hunger Awareness month, Pizza Factory is donating funds to help support the initiative to end childhood hunger
Now through Oct. 16, Pizza Factory is donating $1 to No Kid Hungry for any order made through the Pizza Factory App.
Chuck Pearce, the Winters Pizza Factory owner, said all Pizza Factories are participating in the hunger awareness initiative.
“I want to put it out there to bring awareness and let everyone know that every time they order Pizza Factory through the app there are proceeds going to a good cause,” Pearce said.
No Kid Hungry is currently providing services to provide meals to children whose families do not have access to food. Their efforts include providing school breakfasts, after-school meals, and meals over the summer break.
Currently, No Kid Hungry is working to connect families whose children are not attending school due to coronavirus-related school closures with free meal opportunities. Their Free Meal Finder map uses a zip code to locate school meals sites, food banks and other nonprofits and organizations serving food in the area. Access the Free Meal Finder map online at https://www.nokidhungry.org/coronavirus.
Pearce said Pizza Factory gets involved with a variety of different programs. Recently, Pizza Factory locations have been working to donate Buddy Benches to school campuses in efforts to end child bullying. The Winters Pizza Factory location also has an anti-bullying banner inside of the restaurant.
The Pizza Factory app is available for smartphones and wireless devices through the device’s specified app store.
