Special guest Kristin Wertz, leader of corporate social responsibility for Pizza Hut joins the show to discuss how they are bringing families together for dinner on a budget, as well as how their efforts are bringing relief to worldwide hunger.
“Appearing on “The Balancing Act” is a great opportunity to talk about Pizza Hut’s relief efforts in fighting world hunger,” says Wertz. “Our global campaign is called, Hunger to Hope. Hunger to Hope is the world’s largest private sector hunger relief initiative. In the past four years, more than 1.4 million employees, franchisees and their families have volunteered more than 21 million hours to aid hunger relief efforts in communities worldwide. Together, we have raised nearly $85 million for the World Food Program and helped to provide more than 350 million meals to families in need.”
Pizza Hut is also bringing relief to families that want to spend time together dining out or ordering out—but find themselves on a budget. Wertz says, “Pizza Hut offers Creamy Chicken Alfredo or Meaty Marinara Tuscani pastas every day, but on Tuesday’s it’s a special day. It’s called—Tuscani Tuesdays! Now you can feed your family for just $10 or two of you for $6!”
This year Pizza Hut is partnering with Zynga™ and four of their most popular games: Empires & Allies™, CityVille™, FarmVille™ or Pioneer Trail™. They invite you help World Hunger Relief and “Share a Slice of Hope” by visiting, http://rewards.zynga.com/
