It is through the generosity and support of Greco customers and Franchisees that made this campaign such a huge success.”

The Food Banks not only need support during the holidays but also in the summer months when food insecurities don’t take a summer break. “We are incredibly grateful for all the support Greco Pizza Franchisees have shown us in 2018, 3700 pizzas will feed a lot of families in Atlantic Canada. We look forward to partnering on future promotions with an established Atlantic Canadian business like Greco Pizza” says Greg Doucet, Provincial Food Director, New Brunswick Association of Food Banks (NBAFB).
