Fazoli’s Is Taking Hunger Awareness to the Streets

A breadsticks-only food truck sounds like a cool idea on its own, but when it’s traveling the country to raise awareness and funds for childhood hungry charity Feed the Children, then you’ve got something really special.

Fazoli’s has unveiled a new food truck, the Breadstick Express, to visit the chain’s markets across the United States. The truck will hand out breadsticks and coupons for $5 off any Family Meal in order to encourage customers to visit a Fazoli’s and donate to Feed the Children.

“Fazoli’s is a place where families can go to enjoy a meal together; we are committed to helping families who are less fortunate as well,” Cathy Hull, Fazoli’s chief marketing officer, said in a statement. “Reaching out and handing a person a breadstick is the simplest way to convey our commitment to childhood hunger.”

The tour begins June 21 in the Fazoli’s headquarters city of Lexington, Ky. From Lexington, Fazoli’s breadstick tour will travel to Indianapolis, St. Louis and Denver before finishing Aug. 14 in South Bend, Ind. Other stops will include Evansville, Ind.; Paducah, Ky.; Kansas City, Mo.; Colorado Springs, Colo.; Lincoln and Omaha, Neb.; Des Moines, Iowa; and Madison and Green Bay, Wis. (via nrn.com)
