With nearly 90,000 local kids experiencing food insecurity, LaRosa’s has teamed up with long-time community partner Freestore Foodbank on a ten-week effort specifically to stock 60 school pantries in 20 counties throughout the Tri-State. A significant percentage of food-insecure children rely on free and reduced school meals, and for their families, most of whom are considered ‘working poor’, the Freestore Foodbank’s school pantries provide a respite to access of shelf-stable and frozen food in a trusted and familiar place – at school. Through Buddy Card sales at all Greater Cincinnati LaRosa’s Family Pizzerias, LaRosa’s will contribute $ 5 to Freestore Foodbank from all $ 10 Buddy Cards purchased by Guests now through June 20, 2021.
