VANCOUVER — Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria has brought back its hand-milled Campania Tomato Sauce for the holiday season. The Canadian restaurant chain has once again teamed up with Mealshare for its fifth-annual Campania Tomato Sauce campaign, which provides one meal to Canadian youth in need for every jar of sauce purchased through Dec. 31.
“Mealshare has become a very important partner for Famoso since we began selling our Campania Tomato Sauce jars in 2013,” says Justin Lussier, CEO and co-founder of Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria. “We want to do our part in helping end youth hunger across Canada by giving back to the communities in which our restaurants operate.”
Mealshare’s mission is to enable and inspire people to join the fight to end youth hunger. Funds raised from last year’s Campania Tomato Sauce sales provided 16,115 meals to in-need youth across Western Canada and Ontario. Since Campania Tomato Sauce sales began in 2013, 22,368 jars of sauce have been purchased to support the 17 local communities in which Famoso operates.
“The Campania Tomato Sauce campaign continues to amaze us, and we’re excited to partner with Famoso again to provide meals to hungry youth in local Canadian communities,” adds Andrew Hall, co-founder of Mealshare. “We’re all thinking about giving back at this time of year, and we are really excited for another successful year of the Campania campaign.”
Famoso boasts 30 restaurant locations in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario.
