Buy a limited run pizza in September – October and 100% of those sales benefit Filling the Blanks and Making Strides of Fairfield County
A $14 donation gets you fed and you’re donating 100% to Filling in the Blanks. What’s on it? Light marinara, mozzarella, cheddar, seasoned ground beef, and tortilla strips. Pro tip: add hot oil.
Letizia’s Pizza is no stranger to helping out local charities. It’s a simple win-win concept; buy a specialty pizza, devour it, and ALL the proceeds from each pie sold are donated to a good cause.
This September, Letizia’s brought back their taco pizza to benefit Filling in the Blanks, a charity that’s geared towards fighting childhood hunger by providing children with meals on the weekends.
Partnering with charities is something Letizia’s owners Dennis Letizia, Dave Cook, and Danny Segers say they’ll always be a part of. “It’s our way to give back,” Segers says. “Our community is so supportive of us whenever we ask, so when we find local charities like Filling in the Blanks and see all the hard work, they put in to end childhood hunger, we’re ecstatic to help.”

In October, Letizia’s will be at it again with Gertie’s Pie of Hope, a bacon macaroni and cheese pizza. Funds from that pie will benefit a cause they’ve supported for what’s about to be the fourth year in a row, Making Strides of Fairfield County, an organization whose funds go towards raising money for breast cancer research and service like providing patients with free transportation to chemotherapy appointments, a cancer helpline, and free places to stay near treatment centers.
“We started Gertie’s Pie of Hope because breast cancer seems to be a disease that has negatively impacted everyone’s life, including each of ours,” Segers says. “If we can raise a few thousand dollars that can be used to help find a cure by selling pizza, then why wouldn’t we do it?”
