Pizza Fusion to host national fundraiser this September to help end childhood hunger in America
Socially responsible pizza chain supports efforts to end childhood hunger in the United States via customer fundraising promotions for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign
(BOCA RATON, Fla.) September 4, 2013 – For a second year, Pizza Fusion, America’s socially responsible pizza chain, will host a fundraising initiative throughout September, supporting work to end childhood hunger in America.
Pizza Fusion locations nationwide will offer fundraising promotions next month in support of Share Our Strength, a non-profit organization committed to ending childhood hunger in the U.S. Funds will help raise awareness about child hunger, create public-private partnerships that align kids with the resources they need, support nutrition programs like School Breakfast and Summer Meals, and educate kids and their families on how to cook healthy meals with limited resources.
All September, Pizza Fusion will reward guests for donating with the following promotions. Guests who donate:
- $1 will receive a coupon for a Free Chocolate Chip Cookie on the next visit;
- $5 will receive a coupon for a Free Personal Cheese Pizza on the next visit;
- $10 will receive a coupon for a Free Flatbread and Dip Trio on the next visit; and
- $20 will receive a coupon for a Free Extra-Large Cheese Pizza.
“It is shocking to hear how many kids here in the U.S. go hungry every day,” Vaughan Lazar, CEO and co-founder of Pizza Fusion, states. “We invite all our customers to join us in making a difference as we work to make No Kid Hungry a reality. Last year we raised over $8,000 for No Kid Hungry. We look forward to exceeding that as we proudly partner with Share Our Strength for the second year in a row.”
An astounding 1 in 5 children in the U.S. struggles with hunger. A child that doesn’t have enough food to eat will likely get sick more often and not do well in school, diminishing their opportunities to graduate, thereby effecting their own financial future.
“Everyone—private citizens, businesses, policymakers, and nonprofits—has a role in helping end childhood hunger in America,” said Billy Shore, Founder and CEO of Share Our Strength®. “I encourage everyone to dine out often at participating restaurants wherever they are this September. Then visit NoKidHungry.org to join this national movement to ensure that every child in America has access to the nutritious food they need, every day.”
Guests can redeem their No Kid Hungry coupons on their next, dine-in visit to the restaurant. Coupons will expire on October 30, 2013, and are not valid with other offers, promotions, discounts or coupons.
