Metro Pizza is joining more than 70 pizzerias across the U.S. in fighting child hunger. Participating pizzerias each feature a specialty pizza and donate $1 to No Kid Hungry for every featured pizza sold during May, 2017 (Pictured: Metro Square Pie Sicilian).
The campaign is called “Slice Out Special” and is produced by a NYC-based nonprofit called Slice Out Hunger, which supports hunger relief and prevention organizations through the American pizza community. Metro Pizza co-owner/co-founder John Arena is a member of the board of directors of Slice Out Hunger.
Metro Pizza will be featuring the 86th Street Square Pie as well as the Siciliano Americano Pie that took the Bronze Medal in the 2017 International Pizza Expo (pan division).
Slice Out Hunger is a New York City-based nonprofit run by pizza lovers and pizza industry professionals with a mission to support hunger relief initiatives by fundraising through the American pizza community. Since its inception in 2009, Slice Out Hunger has raised more than $160,000 for hunger relief. This is Slice Out Hunger’s first nationwide campaign.
No child should go hungry in America, but 1 in 6 kids will face hunger this year. Using proven, practical solutions, No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger today by ensuring that kids start the day with a nutritious breakfast and families learn the skills they need to shop and cook on a budget. When we all work together, we can make sure kids get the healthy food they need. No Kid Hungry is a campaign from national anti-hunger organization Share Our Strength.
