Did you know? Each month, more than 850,000 Canadians turn to food banks for help, and one-third of those Canadians are youth!
For the sixth year in a row, the Italian pizzeria chain Famoso is partaking in a ‘buy one give one’ campaign with their house-made Campania Tomato Sauce, benefiting the charity organization MealShare. The sauce is made from vine-ripened plum tomatoes, hand-picked from the rich soils of Mount Vesuvius in Naples and hand-milled to capture authentic Neapolitan flavour. Delicious, simple and fresh, there’s only two ingredients: tomatoes and salt. This clean and simple sauce can be used as an ingredient to enhance tomato-based soup recipes, in stews, as a dressing, and, of course, as a base for pasta sauce.
Available only once each year at $8 for a 500ml jar, Famoso’s Campania Tomato Sauce is available for purchase in-restaurant ‘til December 31, or while supplies last. For every jar purchased, 100% of net proceeds are donated to MealShare, and one meal with be provided to someone in need.
Last year, through the same campaign, over 26,607 meals were provided to in-need youth across Western Canada and Ontario.
Famoso Italian Pizzeria + Bar locations in Vancouver include Commercial Drive (1380 Commercial Dr), Guildford Town Centre (10355 152 Street), Morgan Crossing (15865 Croydon Drive), and Abbotsford High Street (3122 Mt. Lehman Road).
