During summer months, millions of children across America will face food scarcity without school meal programs. In order to help supply meals to those in need, Fazoli’s is inviting customers to pay it forward through its buy one, give one campaign. For every Primo Submarinos® purchased June 13-19, 2016, Fazoli's will donate a sandwich of equal value to Feed the Children. For nearly five years, Fazoli’s has donated more than 10 tons of food and has raised more than $200,000 for Feed the Children.

“The longstanding partnership Fazoli’s has with Feed the Children is very important not only to our associates, but to the communities we serve,” said President and CEO Carl Howard. “By purchasing one of our new Primo Submarinos® our valued guests are directly providing food to those in need.”

Made-to-order and served with hot, fresh, unlimited breadsticks when dining in, Fazoli’s new Primo Submarinos® include quality ingredients such as fresh mozzarella cheese, overstuffed premium meats and fresh-sliced vegetables.

Fazoli’s new Primo Submarinos® include:

Turkey Mozzarella Fresco
Smoked turkey topped with sliced mozzarella cheese, savory pesto drizzle, marinated Caprese-style bell peppers, and zesty peppercorn ranch, served baked on a toasted garlic roll.

Turkey Club Classico
An Italian-style turkey club, featuring thinly sliced smoked turkey, crispy bacon, sliced mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan peppercorn ranch, served baked on a toasted garlic roll.

The Primo Italiano
Generous portions of savory Genoa salami, seasoned capicola, and baked ham topped with sliced mozzarella, served baked on a toasted garlic roll.

Meatball Da Vinci
Made with Fazoli’s famous meatballs, pepperoni, and topped with melted sliced mozzarella cheese, served baked on a toasted garlic roll.

In 2012, Fazoli’s was awarded the COEX Innovation Award for its continued fundraising and food donations to Feed the Children. This past November, Fazoli’s was in St. Louis to distribute food to 800 military families as part of Feed the Children’s Homefront Harvest Festival. Additionally, Fazoli’s raises money for Feed the Children through the sale of its specialty ice beverage, Giving Grape and through the sale of a coupon book.

“We are greatly honored to partner with Fazoli’s in the fight to end hunger in America,” said J.C. Watts, Jr., president and CEO of Feed the Children. ”Because of the generosity of Fazoli’s, Feed the Children is able to aid families who need us most.”
