Domino’s Feed the Knead program donates 2,000 pizzas
Pizza giant Domino’s Feed the Knead program has donated more than 2,000 pizzas to those in need across Australia, and there are more on the way.
The fast food initiative allows individuals to nominate via a form online someone they know who is doing it tough. The local Domino’s store will then assess this application and if approved, provide a free pizza.
Domino’s Australia and New Zealand CEO Nick Knight said the company was committed to giving back to the communities in which it operates.
“These are challenging times and we consider it a privilege to be able to continue to deliver safe, hot meals.
“We are doing everything possible to live up to that privilege and to return the support that our communities so generously provide us,” Knight said.
“So, whether you have lost your job due to Covid-19, are struggling to put food on the table, or know an individual or business doing it tough, we want to do what we can to help.
“We know that pizza can’t solve all of the world’s problems, but it can bring a small slice of joy to a bad day, and in these times of extreme stress and uncertainty that’s never been more important.”
The Feed the Knead program is championed by local stores.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Domino’s and its registered charity Give for Good have been busy supporting essential workers, and have donated more than 50,000 pizzas to those in frontline roles.
In October last year Give for Good partnered with national suicide prevention charity, Lifeline, and announced it will contribute $750,000 over three years to help fund the roll-out of a text support service across Australia as part of Lifeline’s digital transformation.
