Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria and Mealshare are fighting youth hunger with tomato sauce
Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria’s famous hand-milled Campania Tomato Sauce is back for the holiday season. For the fifth year in a row, Famoso will sell its authentic Campania Tomato Sauce at all 30 restaurants located in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario, in partnership with Mealshare. From today through December 31, 2017, one meal will be provided to a Canadian youth in need for every jar of Campania sauce purchased, right in the community in which the sauce was sold.
The holidays are about giving—and what is sometimes forgotten during the holidays, is giving back to one’s community. During a time of often gluttonous eating, we forget there is a poor allocation of food in the world. More than 850,000 Canadians a month turn to food banks for help. One-third of those Canadians are youth—and through the sale of Campania Tomato Sauce last year, Famoso helped provided 16,115 meals to in-need youth across Western Canada and Ontario.
Made from only the finest vine-ripened plum tomatoes, picked from the rich soils of Mount Vesuvius in Naples, Famoso’s Campania Tomato Sauce is hand-milled and jarred to capture authentic Neapolitan flavour. Available only once a year during the holiday season, Campania Tomato Sauce retails for $8 per 500mL jar. For more information about Campania Tomato Sauce, please visit www.famoso.ca/campania.
