We love Lou Malnati's (Jason eats it 3 times a week!). The Chicago based pizzeria has launched an official Lou Malnati’s Kindness Rocks Feeds the Front Lines campaign and have been providing meals for health care workers at local hospitals over the past few weeks.
In order to serve even more people on the front lines, the company is asking for your support, through the online fundraising platform, GoFundMe
Here's why Lou Malnati's is extra amazing: While food deliveries are happening daily, for every dollar raised, Lou Malnati’s will provide twice the amount in food. For example, if you give $25, Malnati's will deliver $50 worth of food. They set a goal of $50,000, and with that, they'll feed more than 17,500 front line workers throughout the communities in which they serve.
Historically, Lou Malnati's Kindness Rocks charitable program has been used to support employees and customers including helping those in need, granting college scholarships to Lou Malnati’s team members and raising money annually for cancer research. In addition, giving back to local communities through fundraising opportunities, charitable donations, and participating in community and volunteer events.
During COVID-19 pandemic, Lou Malnati’s is expanding their Kindness Rocks fundraising to feed health care personnel, firefighters and police officers who are on the front lines. “We have worked so hard at creating community at Malnati’s and believe in giving back to the communities we serve. During this unprecedented time, health care personnel are working around the clock to fight this incredible pandemic by caring for those in need,” said owner, Marc Malnati. “Through our Kindness Rocks program, we are creating a way to support those on the front lines. We’ve made it our mission to stick together by doing the job we love and making people happy by providing comfort food.”
