> All funds raised must be postmarked by June 15, 2017 in order for your pizzeria to be eligible for a prize package (Molino Caputo flour, Galbani Cheese, Bianco DiNapoli Tomatoes, WestRock pizza boxes) and inclusion in the post-event press release. Failure to send your check by June 15 will automatically render you ineligible for a prize package and may disqualify you from participation in future Slice Out Hunger campaigns. 

Where do I send my check?

> Please send checks to:
     SLICE OUT HUNGER
     244 Fifth Ave, S-260

I signed up. Now what?

> All you have to do is create a specialty pizza, call it the Slice Out Special (SOS), and promote it at your restaurant for the month of May. At the end of the month, you'll send $1 to Slice Out Hunger for every SOS pizza sold.

How can I help promote the campaign?

> Tell your customers about your pizza using the hashtags #pizza4good and #sliceoutspecial on social media. Also be sure to follow @sliceouthunger on TwitterInstagram, and Facebook so you can monitor for our posts about YOUR pizzeria! If you tag us, we'll spread the love by reposting.

Why should I participate in this campaign rather than hosting my own?

> There is great power in unity. Combining under a single campaign helps the pizza community as a whole and greatly amplifies the message that we care about our neighbors. It also helps garner media attention and general awareness, since we'll all be promoting the same thing.
