Fazoli’s & Feed The Children: A Dynamic Duo!
On April 13, Fazoli’s teamed up with Feed The Children®, a nationwide non-profit organization devoted to serving those in need and defeating hunger once and for all.
First established in 1979, Feed The Children has grown to be recognized as one of the largest U.S.-based non-profit organizations around, serving folks in the U.S, as well as 10 additional countries worldwide. Being that family and food are at the heart of Fazoli’s core values, teaming up with this fantastic organization was truly a no-brainer! Here’s how it all went down:
On April 13, the Fazoli’s team arrived on the scene at the Union Missionary Baptist Church of Lansing, Michigan. Our mission? To lend a hand in providing 400 families in the Lansing area with much-needed food and essentials. And boy did we succeed, filling two Feed The Children semi-trucks with tons of necessities for distribution throughout the community.
While being able to lend a hand to those in need was truly an honor for all of us here at Fazoli’s, the event held a special place in the heart of one of our very own — franchise owner, Terry Chepy:
“I grew up in the Lansing area, and it is extra special to have the opportunity to give back to the community and families in my hometown. Fazoli’s celebrates families and we’re honored to do what we can to help make a difference for those in need in the Lansing community.”
Each pre-chosen family was invited to receive a 25-pound box of food, a 10-pound box of essentials — like shampoo, conditioner, lotion and other personal care items — as well as additional products as needed. Statistics show that in the Lansing area alone, nearly 30-percent of families livebelow the poverty line. We feel fortunate enough to have been able to join Feed The Children in their efforts to help close that gap!
Here at Fazoli’s, family and food are everything. We do all that we can to provide a delicious, authentic Italian meal to all — especially those who might be struggling to make ends meet.
