VANCOUVER, BC, April 6, 2018Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria raised over $100,000 forMealshareto help feed in-need youth in Canada over the last four years of Famoso and Mealshare’s Campania Tomato Sauce Campaign.

Famoso and Mealshare’s Campania Tomato Sauce Campaign helps raise money for in-need youth during November and December through the sale of Famoso’s Campania Tomato Sauce. Every time a customer purchases a jar of Famoso’s hand-milled Campania Tomato Sauce in any of Famoso’s 30 locations, all proceeds go to Mealshare to help end youth hunger right in the community in which the jar was sold. The 2017 Campania Tomato Sauce Campaign raised $29,607 through the sale of Campania Tomato Sauce which was directed to Mealshare to donate meals to in-need youth across British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario.

“Mealshare has become a very important partner for Famoso since the launch of our Campania Tomato Sauce Campaign in 2014,” says Justin Lussier, chief executive officer and co-founder of Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria. “We were so pleased to work with Mealshare again this year, and thanks to the support of our guests, we were able to help work towards the goal of ending youth hunger in Canada.”

Mealshare’s mission is to enable and inspire people to join the fight to end youth hunger. Since Campania Tomato Sauce sales began in 2014, 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 so happy to have worked with Famoso once again to provide meals to hungry youth in local Canadian communities,” adds Andrew Hall, co-founder of Mealshare.
