Little Caesar’s Pizza locations in the Roanoke area are continuing their support of area food banks with a major food drive this month through Feeding America Southwest Virginia.
Now through March 30, area residents are encouraged to drop off three or more non-perishable food items to any of the 20 southwest Virginia Little Caesar’s locations. All food collected will be donated to local food banks through Feeding America Southwest Virginia, a member of the United States’ largest domestic hunger relief organization, Feeding America.
To reward its customers for their generosity, Little Caesars will provide a $2.00 discount on its new Bacon Crust DEEP DEEP Dish Pizza to those that contribute.
According to local Little Caesar’s owner Patrick O’Connell:
It’s amazing to me that the hunger problem in the United States can be solved with our existing food supply- it’s simply a question of transportation & allocation.
Our food drive this month is part of our on-going commitment to help bridge this gap at the local level, right here in southwest Virginia.
Feeding America Southwest Virginia is the leading hunger relief organization in the region and distributes over 20 million pounds of food annually to hundreds of local food pantries and soup kitchens.
Since we began working with Aces, LLC, the local Little Caesars franchisee, we have been able to get over 100,000 pizzas to families in need. We are excited to continue our work with Little Caesars and hope that this food drive will not only increase food donation levels but raise awareness as well
– Pamela Irvine, President and CEO of Feeding America Southwest Virginia.
The Feeding America Southwest Virginia program is just part of Little Caesar’s nationwide commitment to the communities it serves. The Little Caesars Love Kitchen, a pizza kitchen on wheels, travels across the continental United States and Canada meeting the needs of the hungry, the homeless and disaster survivors.
Feeding America is a nationwide network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs that provides food and services to people each year. Together, we are the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization.
