This is Pizza Huts eighth annual World Hunger Relief campaign. The theme this year is “Together We Can Deliver Hope. Customers can donate at their local Pizza Huts or they can add a donation at teh end of their orders.

SO….all you college kids who are ordering the heck out of pizza while you take a break from studying or during the all-weekend gaming tournament, add a dollar or three to every pizza order and feel good about how much pizza you are actually eating. And then, instead of dumping a bucket of water over your head, just tweet that you supportive of the world hunger relief campaign that pizza hut is doing.

Pizza Hut Embarks on Annual World Hunger Relief Campaign.

According to the United Nations, there are nearly 850 million people around the world who suffer from chronic hunger. To bring hope to those in need, Pizza Hut, the world’s largest pizza company, has launched its annual World Hunger Relief campaign to benefit the World Food Programme (WFP).

Through October 26, the company will collect donations inside its more than 6,300 restaurants across the country and online, with every dollar raised to benefit the WFP’s fight against hunger. Even the smallest donation can make a big difference, as $1 feeds four children, $3 can feed two children for a week, $5 feeds a child for a month, and $10 feeds an entire classroom for a day. Through donations, Pizza Hut has helped raise more than $12 million since the initiative began in 2007 and last year alone, the pizza company helped raise $2.9 million, which served over 10 million meals to hungry children.
