The company in a story on News 4 Buffalo said it is donating 700 pizzas to Buffalo Public Schools.

“Since schools are closed, many kids no longer have access to the free meals they once received,” said Allan Erwin, a Buffalo-area Domino’s franchisee. “We wanted to partner with Buffalo Public Schools to help reduce hunger, and provide a hot meal to kids and families in need.”

Beginning today (April 22), the two local Domino's will deliver the pizzas to eight Buffalo schools through May. Nationwide, Domino’s will donate more than 1.2 million pizzas to communities.

“We realize that there is a great deal of hardship and uncertainty at this time,” said Erwin. “Domino’s wants to do whatever it can to help, and that means spreading a little bit of joy through pizza.”
