Home Run Inn, Chicago’s “Premium Thin-Crust Pizza,” focuses on supporting those in need, feeding more than 100,000 people during October National Pizza Month.
A portion of proceeds from frozen pizza and restaurant sales will be donated to Feed My Starving Children (FMSC), supporting the distribution of food to children and families in underdeveloped countries. Home Run Inn employees will also donate their time to pack meals at FMSC in October, feeding 87,000 individuals. In addition, Home Run Inn will donate pizzas to Northern Illinois Food Bank, feeding over 20,000 people to support local communities.
“The Home Run Inn family remains dedicated to giving back to those in need and National Pizza Month is an important time to uphold our core family values,” says Gina Bolger, Senior Vice President of Branding and third-generation family member of Home Run Inn.
“The Home Run Inn team has perfected the art serving in the restaurant and out, by so generously giving back to their communities. They have taken that expertise and passion and joined forces with Feed My Starving Children becoming champions for those we serve in underdeveloped communities around the world,” says Marilyn Maurella, Major Gifts Manager for Feed My Starving Children. “Over the years, Home Run Inn has allowed us to feed the spirits of their employees during their annual team packing session, producing hundreds of thousands of meals together and has funded over 300,000 additional meals. Feed My Starving Children is so grateful for the partnership with Home Run Inn and we look forward to reaching even more kids together!”
“Thanks, Home Run Inn, for donating pizzas to the Food Bank,” says Jennifer Clark, Marketing Communications Manager for the Food Bank. “With the current disruptions in the food supply chain, donations like these help us ensure that families throughout Northern Illinois have the food they need to thrive.”
Home Run Inn operates nine Chicago area restaurants and sells frozen pizza in more than 40 states. The oldest family-owned frozen pizza label, Home Run Inn ranks among the top 10 in pizza brands sold nationally.
Home Run Inn has captured the hearts of Chicagoans with the same family tradition since it opened its first tavern on the South Side more than 74 years ago in 1947. The original pizza recipe is recognized for its irresistible flavor and hand-pinched buttery, flaky crust topped with only all-natural and premium ingredients.
