We support the community by creating more local jobs through our commitment to making our products in the USA. We support the community by paying our employees to spend a day volunteering.
And now we’re proud to announce that we’ll be supporting the community by giving a portion of product proceeds to two extraordinary charities: the Greater Boston Food Bank and Warrior Thunder Foundation.
For each KettlePizza Serious Eats special edition kit sold in 2015, ten percent of the proceeds will be donated to these two non-profit organizations. Inspired by the team at Slice Serious Eats, the Serious Eats Special Edition kit includes the KettlePizza unit, the popular ProGrate/Tombstone Combo and the newly designed KettlePizza Baking Steel lid. This combination yields the highest dome temperatures and fastest cooking times, enabling users to cook a Neapolitan style pizza in less than four minutes.
“It is important for companies to give back to their communities in any way that they can, whether it’s through financial support or volunteering programs,” said Al Contarino, co-founder of KettlePizza. “Running a good business is not just about making great products or profits – it is about supporting our communities and organizations that help those in need.”
The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) is the largest hunger-relief organization in New England and among the largest food banks in the country. Last year, GBFB distributed 48 million pounds of food, enough to provide healthy meals to as many as 545,000 people.
The Warrior Thunder Foundation, Inc., (WTFI), is a Massachusetts, volunteer-run organization that aims to raise public awareness and charitable donations for the needs of veterans, particularly injured service men and women and their families.
