Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria is also starting a giveback program with their frozen pizzas, where sales will be matched. This will go toward St. Louis Area Food Bank, Operation Food Search, and two other local-area food banks.
“Now more than ever we need to help those in need. In addition to our restaurants' Giveback Tuesday program, we wanted to start giving back through our online frozen delivery as well,” said co-owner and chef Katie Collier. “Starting today, for every order sold, we will donate one frozen pizza to a local food bank. The first recipient will be St. Louis Area Food Bank. They have been on the frontlines during this time, distributing food to those in need.”
Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria’s Giveback Tuesday program will also continue, in which 100% of the proceeds from each fourth Tuesday of the month are donated to a local charity. This month's event will be held on June 23 at the Rock Hill location, benefitting CHAMP Assistance Dogs. To date, they have donated $231,520 through this program.
